COVID-19 Genetics Publications

Many of the participating groups in COVID-19 Host Genetics Initiative have already submitted or published genetic findings during or in advance of. These findings should be cited as relevant to follow-up work based on specific discovered loci, even if that work may have been based on unpublished analyses of the HGI.
