Kim IVT Cov (kimIvtCov) Track Description


This track shows the coverage of Nanopore sequences from Kim et al. 2020 obtained after in-vitro reverse transcription and tiling PCR of SARS-CoV-2 genomes. This is not direct RNA sequencing, but multiplex PCR on DNA, followed by sequencing. The coverage shown here does not allow to draw conclusions on RNA modifications or RNA editing, but indicates regions of the genome that are harder to sequence with Nanopore sequencing.

Display Conventions and Configuration

Sequence coverage of every bp is shown. All reads were used.
