To prevent future pandemics, it is important that we understand
ndirectly in a laboratory accident. The genome of SARS-COV-2 contains
a peculiar pattern of unique restriction endonuclease recognition
characteristic of synthetic viruses. Here, we report the likelihood of
observing such a pattern in coronaviruses with no history of
bioengineering. We find that SARS-CoV-2 is an anomaly, more likely a
these synthetic-looking recognitions sites, and has a synthetic
fingerprint unlikely to have evolved from its close relatives. We
nfectious clone assembled in vitro.
