Objective: To adapt 'fishplots' to describe real-time evolution of SARS-CoV-2 genomic clusters.
Results: This novel analysis adapted the fishplot to depict the size and duration of circulating genomic clusters over time in New South Wales, Australia. It illuminated the effectiveness of interventions on the emergence, spread and eventual elimination of clusters and distilled genomic data into clear information to inform public health action.
Keywords: Australia; Bioinformatics; Genomic epidemiology; SARS-CoV-2; Whole genome sequencing.
