Learning Mutational Semantics

Meta Review

This paper proposes a method for addressing the question of viral escape prediction, using an NLP-based approach. The manuscripts has been actively discussed by the referees and we agree with ultimate verdict that in particular the theoretical and conceptual contribution have considerable merit. The formulation whereby notions of semantics and grammatically are borrowed from NLP has the potential to stimulate further developments in this direction.
