Gama Plus: Brazilian researchers discover new variant

In an article in Veja Saúde magazine, Genov was cited as the entity responsible for sequencing the coronavirus and identifying the convergent mutation of the Gamma variant. "This proline-to-histidine mutation has already been seen in other variants around the world, including all variants of concern (VOCs), but was not very common in Gamma. We have noticed, however, an increase in its occurrence in Brazilian samples," explained Genov coordinator and virologist at Dasa, José Eduardo Levi.
