The team "Statistical Genomics and Biological Physics" has obtained financial support by the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering of Sorbonne Université, to develop sequence-data driven models of evolutionary landscapes and selective constraints acting in the Covid-19 causing virus SARS-CoV-2. The projects aims at finding signatures of selection in the rapidly increasing number of available 
genomes, and to interpret them in terms of protein structure, function and protein-protein interactions inside coronaviruses and with the host (e.g. the famous interaction of the viral spike protein with the human ACE2 receptor).
