The Sunday Times Feature - Dr. Sebastian Maurer-Stroh and team
Dr. Sebastian Maurer-Stroh and his team, were recently featured on the Sunday Times for their contribution towards the development of the classification of Sars-CoV-2 viral clades and subclades used to track the virus mutations and movement of the clades around the world.

Such genomic sequencing not only helps to connect different, previously unlinked clusters, it also indicates how effectively the spread of COVID-19 is being tackled.
