GWH has deposited currently sequenced complete Coronaviridae genome and protein sequences and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 genome assemblies.

The first five 2019 novel coronaviridae genome sequences have been released by China National Center for Bioinformation and National Genomics Data Center and the download service are provided to worldwide researchers. The sequences are obtained from and authorized by the Institute of Pathogen Biology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College.

Genome Warehouse

The Genome Warehouse (GWH) is a public repository housing genome-scale data for a wide range of species and delivering a series of web services for genome data submission, storage, release and sharing.
