Nicholson MD, Endler L, Popa A, Genger JW, Bock C, Michor F, Bergthaler A. 2021. Response to comment on "Genomic epidemiology of superspreading events in Austria reveals mutational dynamics and transmission properties of SARS-CoV-2". Science translational medicine. 13(617):eabj3222. Pubmed: 34705522 DOI:10.1126/scitranslmed.abj3222


Further analysis of SARS-CoV-2 genome sequencing data identifies several highly recurrent genetic variants with low allele frequencies, which, if filtered out, provide estimates consistent with tighter transmission bottlenecks.
