The 2019 Covid-19 pandemic is the most data-rich pandemic in human history to date, offering us an unprecedented chance to learn from it and prepare for future pandemics. Here, we report on our work studying SARS-CoV-2 genetic samples from fall 2019 to summer 2021. Along with this real-world data, we created a pandemic simulator, Simdemic, to model foundational principles of genome changes during a pandemic.
