Annotation & Prediction

Genes and transcripts

Annotation of the SARS-CoV-2 genome has been generated using a modified Ensembl genebuild supported by protein evidence. Further details are available on the SARS-CoV-2 annotation page.

Additional viral genomes and their annotation have been imported from ENA to allow comparative analysis with SARS-CoV-2.


Variation data is available for SARS-CoV-2 only - details are available on the SARS-CoV-2 variation page.

Comparative analyses

Gene trees have been computed for all the viral genomes available on this site. More information about our genetree pipeline can be found on our vertebrate website.
