Most Aired S: N440K, 2.1% faster than the rest
According to this, 19 types of genetic changes have been observed in the genome of the corona in India so far and most of them have the strength to spread rapidly in only one strain. Comparing the variants among all the 19 districts, there is only S: N440K which has the ability to spread 2.1 percent faster than the rest.
Re-infecting new genome
Scientists say that the genome is spreading the fastest in India. He is re-infecting people corona. Recently, some cases have been reported from Delhi, Noida and Ghaziabad in which people have complained twice or twice.
Study on 2.65 lakh genome mutations found worldwide
So far, more than four and a half thousand samples of genome sequencing have been done in the country and 19 types of genetic changes have been confirmed in 10 types of these. Scientists from many countries including India and Britain have studied the results collected through sequencing worldwide.
Doctors from IGIB, New Delhi and Kurnool Medical College, Andhra Pradesh have participated in this study. IGIB scientist Dr. Vinod Scaria told that work is going on on genome sequencing worldwide.
A website has been created to bring all the samples on one platform. Where information is shared from every country. As of December 17, 2,65,079 samples of data have been collected here. The study was conducted in 133 countries.
