I built the first version of the Covince lineage explorer and then led a small team of two that continued its development. The Covince lineage explorer was developed to power the Sanger dashboard and was probably the main tool for understanding dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 evolution in the UK. Screenshots featured in countless of media articles. The Guardian and Sky News built their own pipelines that ingested data we provided in a machine-readable format.

We later repurposed Covince to display global SARS-CoV-2 data at CovGlobe, and researchers at Queens University Belfast used our open-source code to launch their own version.
