    An increasing body of literature describes the role of host factors in COVID-19 MESHD pathogenesis. There is a need to combine diverse, multi-omic data in order to evaluate and substantiate the most robust evidence and inform development of future therapies. We conducted a systematic review of experiments identifying host factors involved in human betacoronavirus infection (SARS-CoV-2, SARS-CoV MESHD, MERS-CoV, seasonal coronaviruses). Gene lists from these diverse sources were integrated using Meta-Analysis by Information Content (MAIC). This previously described algorithm uses data-driven gene list weightings to produce a comprehensive ranked list of implicated host genes. 5,418 genes implicated in human betacoronavirus infection MESHD were identified from 32 datasets. The top ranked gene was *PPIA*, encoding cyclophilin A. Pharmacological inhibition with cyclosporine in vitro exerts antiviral activity against several coronaviruses including SARS-CoV MESHD. Other highly-ranked genes included proposed prognostic factors (* CXCL10 HGNC*, *CD4*, * CD3E HGNC*) and investigational therapeutic targets (* IL1A HGNC*) for COVID-19 MESHD, but also previously overlooked genes with potential as therapeutic targets. Gene rankings also inform the interpretation of COVID-19 MESHD GWAS results, implicating * FYCO1 HGNC* over other nearby genes in a disease-associated locus on chromosome 3. Pathways enriched in gene rankings included T-cell receptor signalling, protein processing, and viral infections MESHD. We identified limited overlap of our gene list with host genes implicated in ARDS (innate immune and inflammation MESHD genes) and Influenza A virus infection MESHD (RNA-binding and ribosome-associated genes). We will continue to update this dynamic ranked list of host genes as the field develops, as a resource to inform and prioritise future studies. Updated results are available at covid19 MESHD.
