Researchers at the University of Helsinki are planning to sequence the SARS-CoV-2 virus genome from nearly all positive COVID-19 samples from the Helsinki University Hospital region. By studying the genome, information regarding the rate of change of the virus or the size of its geographical distribution can be acquired. This will help in preparing for future outbreaks.
