Q&A with scientists from COG-UK about what we know and don’t know about the ‘new variant’ of SARS-CoV-2

COG-UK is the COVID-19 Genomics UK Consortium and has some of the UK’s leading experts on virus genomics.  We asked some of their scientists to make themselves available to answer journalist’s questions at a Q&A about what we do and don’t know about the ‘new variant’ announced yesterday.

Please note the scientists did not have any new data to share – they were simply available to answer journalist questions.


Speakers included:

Prof Sharon Peacock, Director of COG-UK, and Professor of Public Health and Microbiology, University of Cambridge

Prof Tom Connor, Professor in the School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, and Consultant Bioinformatician/Pathogen Bioinformatics Lead

Dr Andrew Page, Head of Informatics, Quadram Institute

Prof Judith Breuer, Professor of Virology and Head of Pathogen Genomics, UCL, and consultant virologist

Prof Nick Loman, Professor of Microbial Genomics and Bioinformatics, University of Birmingham
