About us


We are a young Peruvian research team formed by undergraduate and graduate students from different Peruvian universities, mainly from Universidad Ricardo Palma in Lima - Peru.

During COVID-19 pandemic, we are dedicated to the genomic analyses of hCoV-19 (SARS-CoV-2) through the identification of highly frequent mutations and haplotypes assignation.

Number of cases is not correlated to the number of sequenced genomes in specific countries and months, thus, we envision a methodology to reduce this bias. (Read our article)

A temporal and geographical normalization depending on the number of cases gives us a better estimation of the most important mutations circulating in the world.
