2019-nCoV Acute Respiratory Disease, Australia: Epidemiology Report 1 (Reporting Week 26 January – 1 February 2020) (2020/02/06)

An in-depth annotation of the newly discovered coronavirus (2019-nCoV) genome has revealed differences between 2019-nCoV and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or SARS-like coronaviruses. A systematic comparison identified 380 amino acid substitutions between these coronaviruses, which may have caused functional and pathogenic divergence of 2019-nCoV.
