The Work Packages will mobilise SARS-CoV-2 and other infectious disease data (i.e. make it easier to transfer to a data repository), connect and standardise the data (to make data searchable via the COVID-19 Data Portal and provide data management protocols), and expose and analyse the data (provide standardised analysis methods).
IACS lead work package 5 in this project.
WP5: A continuously evolving demonstrator project feeding the changing research questions that surface during an on-going pandemic to solutions.
Work Package 5 will demonstrate usability of BY-COVID services across disciplines and national borders through continuously evolving demonstrator projects. It will assess viral variants and disease outcomes using real world data, as well as the effectiveness of vaccines against new variants using retrospective clinical trial data and improve the understanding of the mechanistic determinants of variant responses.
