We acknowledge the hard work and open-science of the individual research labs and public health bodies that have made their genome data accessible on GISAID. A detailed table of acknowledgements for the SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences used to build this lineage system is hosted here.


We acknowledge the COG-consortium for allowing direct and immediate access to the UK SARS-CoV-2 data and all individuals involved generating the genome sequences.
