Abstract

Myxoma virus (MYXV) has been evolving in a novel host species-European rabbits-in Australia since 1950. Previous studies of viruses sampled from 1950 to 1999 revealed a remarkably clock-like evolutionary process across all Australian lineages of MYXV. Through an analysis of 49 newly gen...read more

Genome-scale tools are revolutionizing studies of evolution by providing complete determination of the genetic basis of adaptation. Discover the latest research on Genome Dynamics and Adaptation here.

Oncoviral Profiles

Viral infections have been found to be responsible for causing some cancer types in humans. The collection of the viral genome gathered from cancer genome sequencing data can help identify the origin of the cancer. Here is the latest research on oncoviral profiles.

Virulence Factors

Virulence factors are molecules that are produced by organisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They assist the organism in colonization, dissemination, and enhance the ability to survive in harsh environments and evade the host immune system. Discover the latest research on virulence factors here.

Influenza

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by an influenza virus.Symptoms can be mild to severe. The most common symptoms include: high fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing, sneezing, and feeling tired. Discover the latest research on influenza here.
