Part Description

LP422739-5   SARS coronavirus 2 lineage
Lineage nomenclatures are intended to provide a detailed level differentiation of viral mutations of SARS-CoV-2 over time. However, proposed lineage nomenclatures are not intended to portray every evolutionary change, but rather those associated with important epidemiological and biological events.[PMID:32669681] That being said they are not as broad-brushed as clades, but are expected to correspond to outbreaks.[PMID:32794443] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
