Author : Sonam S. Kale, Kishor P. Panzade, Narendra R. Chavan
Genome sequencing and annotation of the SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) is necessary to study their origin, evolution, mode of action, pathogenicity, and for their detection, diagnosis and production of vaccines. The genome sequencing by various countries reported that it has a genome size of 30 kb, one of the largest among RNA viruses. The coronavirus has become the major pathogen of emerging respiratory disease outbreaks seems the symptoms like pneumonia where the detection through some normal symptoms and test in humans is not possible. Thus it requires special detection techniques includes the NAAT test, serological test and medical imagining.
