Reporting First Direct Sequence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA

The Lachlan Coin and Sebastian Duchene teams and collaborators in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Melbourne, Australia, provided the first direct RNA sequence of the SARS-CoV-2, detailed the mRNA structure of the subgenome length of this coronavirus, and described various aspects of coronavirus evolutionary genetics revealed from shared data. The relevant article was released on March 7 on the preprint server bioRxiv (all articles in bioRxiv were not peer-reviewed).
