Working with SARS-Cov-2 is much like taking apart a complex puzzle and piecing it back together. Unable to work with the virus directly, techniques such as cloning the RNA into a yeast cell to form a Yeast Artificial Chromosome (YAC) have been used to then selectively target for mutations with eukaryotic Multiplex Automated Genome Editing, or eMAGE. The ability to manipulate this positive-strand virus in such a manner is what allows us to piece together how this virus behaves.
