Description of talk:Identifying the emergence of lineages and variants of interest in the on-going sars-cov-2 pandemic is of great concern, particularly in the context of antigenic and vaccine escape. This talk will present three statistical methods incorporated into a outbreak scanning tool for identifying clusters, lineages, or variants of concern with high growth rates. Furthermore, this talk will showcase a preliminary public-facing scanning tool where results from these methods can be filtered by statistical cut-off, lineage, or mutation of interest to identify potential variants or mutations linked to increased growth rates in the on-going outbreak.

This talk is part of the PDG Seminars (Pathogen Dynamics Group) series.
