Part Description

LP422736-1   SARS coronavirus 2 clade
Clade nomenclatures aim at providing a broad-brush categorization of globally circulating diversity of SARS-CoV-2. PMID: 32794443 One example of a Clade nomenclature is the based on year followed by a letter ( These are meant to be major groupings and not intended to completely specify genetic diversity. In general, new clades are proposed when certain criteria are met, for example reaching a frequency of 20% globally with at least two mutations away from its parent clade.[] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
