  1. Review 1: "Generation and transmission of inter-lineage recombinants in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic"

    This preprint analyzes all complete UK SARS-CoV-2 genomes that were from the B.1.1.7 lineage to identify putative SARS-CoV-2 recombinant viruses. The reviewer deems the data as potentially informative but empathize limitations in methodological protocol.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
