Someone sent me the genome for Covid-19 in a WhatsApp message last week. It's shown here: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 isolate Wuhan-Hu-1, co - Nucleotide - NCBI

Now I'm no geneticist, but I understand that the 'code' there is a complete description of the virus, and substituting the 4 possible options of nucleotide for 2 binary bits means you can represent it succinctly in a few KB. Can that really be right? So it seems it's perfectly possible to email the real virus around, as long as you've got some machine which can run the code and infect you plugged into your USB port.

Weird really, but then I can fit the DNA sequence of everyone in my office on a USB memory stick these days, and that's weird too.
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
