Speedy analysis reveals mutations, insights into outbreak, along with clues to origin, spread.
Responding rapidly to the deadly outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in West Africa, a team of researchers from the Broad Institute and Harvard University, working with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation and researchers elsewhere, has sequenced and analyzed many Ebola virus genomes. Their findings could have important implications for rapid field diagnostic tests.
The researchers hope their results will speed up scientific understanding of the epidemic and assist global efforts to contain it.
