Genomic surveillance of avian-origin influenza A viruses causing human disease. Lam TT, Pybus OG. Genome Med. 2018 Jun 27;10(1):50.View Journal Article / Working Paper
Avian influenza A viruses (AIVs) pose a threat to global health because of their sporadic zoonotic transmission and potential to cause pandemics. Genomic surveillance of AIVs has become a powerful, cost-effective approach for studying virus transmission, evolution, and dissemination, and has the potential to inform outbreak control efforts and policies.
