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 (Nextstrain.org). 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.[https://virological.org/t/year-letter-genetic-clade-naming-for-sars-cov-2-on-nextstrain-org/498] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
