This page is Fedora Medical SIG's COVID-19 page.

As the COVID-19 is of many people's interest, the page is created for people who want to contribute or do RPM packaging.


Focusing projects

We list up the COVID-19 analysis focusing projects. This is a a top-down approach to find the areas.

Bio tools used in COVID-19 analysis

We list up the bio tools projects used in the COVID-19 analysis. This is a bottom-up approach to find the areas.


nf-core is a collection of analysis pipelines built using Nextflow. We refer it to look into the actual analysis workflows to identify the used bio tools projects. Podman is supported as one of the container workflows according to this page.

Talking people in the project, the following nf-core/nanoseq, nf-core/artic and nf-core/viralrecon are the COVID-19 analyis pipelines.

Following pipelines could be certainly relevant.

As almost any molecular biology technique can be used to look into some aspect of COVID-19, virtually all the nf-core pipeline can be relevant.

Packages list

Distributed Computing

The distributed computing projects are to enable people to help COVID-19 analysis by their computer resources.

Open Hardware

According to this article, there are open source hardware projects related to
