We all have been hit hard by the – as of today still ongoing – SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Since day one of the pandemic, bioinformatic methods have been employed to hunt and fight the virus and the pandemic. This seminar gives an overview of some of the angles where bioinformatics helped in identifying the virus, developing vaccines and fighting the disease, i.e. viral sequencing, epidemiology, and drug design.
