How many strains are there? Should I worry about them? What do these mutations mean? Will we be able to design drugs against them? This educational video puts these mutations in perspective. Some regions of the virus genome actually are evolving very slowly, if at all, and these "conserved" regions show why they make good drug targets, like the RNA polymerase target of the drug remdesivir in trials.

Slides for this video are freely available here, for use/reuse in education. https://figshare.com/articles/Ongoing...
