How to use characterization in a sentence?

  1. Jade Fulce:

    Since the importance of variants may differ by location, CDC, in collaboration with the SIG [SARS-CoV-2 Interagency Group], is closely monitoring the emergence of the B.1.617 variant in the United States and this variant has been prioritized for characterization by the U.S. government to better understand the potential impact on available medical countermeasures, including vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics, cDC and the SIG continually review the available scientific evidence as well as the genomic surveillance data to assess the classification of variants. On May 4, 2021, the B.1.617, B.1.617.1, B.1.617.2, and B.1.617.3 lineages were classified as variants of interests by CDC, in collaboration with the SIG, but variant status might escalate or deescalate based on scientific evidence.

But I didn't choose the easier path then, and I'm not going to now.
