Acknowledgments

Many thanks to Prof. Ron Fouchier, Deputy Head of the Erasmus MC Department of Viroscience and Co-Chair of the GISAID Scientific Advisory Council and to Dr. Peter Bogner, President of the GISAID Initiative and its many dedicated curation teams across the globe that ensure a round-the-clock data quality processing, enabling real-time sharing of the rapidly-growing collection of SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences and associated metadata, thereby providing time-sensitive information during the COVID-19 pandemic. Among them, the teams from the Bioinformatics Institute Singapore A*Star, CNRS and Institut Pasteur, The Francis Crick Institute, Genome Institute of Singapore A*STAR, Hospital de Niños Dr. Ricardo Gutiérrez, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz), Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine, Beijing Genomics Institute, National Scientific and Technical Research Council, University of Adelaide, Public Health Agency of Sweden, Universidad Nacional de La Plata, University of Edinburgh - MRC Human Genetics Unit. We are grateful for their efforts and contributions.

Thanks to the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine for their help in the sequencing work that produced some of the Charité sequences.
