Origins of human virus diversity

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review

Abstract

The diverse consequences of different viral infections on the human population reflect both the history of their origins and the nature of their ongoing evolution. Advances in the ease of finding and characterizing viral genome sequences are having a major impact on our understanding of the diversity of human viruses and of their relatives infecting other species.
