The following queries are directed at computational approaches for genetic- and protein-related data processing. This data processing is useful for analysing viral properties, e.g., detection of mutations or simulation of viral infection. The analysis is not limited to SARS-CoV-2, as the computational principles known from the analysis of other viruses might be applicable to coronaviruses in general and SARS-CoV-2 as well. All searches have been carried out combining the relevant and specific patent classifications in G16B and relevant keywords.

Patent analytics gives a deeper dive into the patent landscape. Our patent analysts have created a spreadsheet containing all the search strategies and datasets for patents for analytical protocols as well as additional statistics in one place for you to download. You can also run the search strategies on your own platform or analyse the datasets yourself. If you are not familiar with how to write or adapt search strategies, our Espacenet pocket guide will help.
