A better description of the extent and structure of genetic diversity in dengue virus DENV in endemic settings is central to its eventual control. To this end we determined the complete coding region sequence of DENV-2 genomes and 68 E genes from viruses sampled from Vietnamese patients between and This genotype replacement event also seems to have occurred within DENV-2 in Thailand and Cambodia, suggestive of a major difference in viral fitness.

Asian flu of 1957
According to Kolesnikov, this combination cannot be formed in the natural world and thus the SARS virus must have been produced under laboratory conditions. Another Russian scientist, Nikolai Filatovhead of Moscow 's epidemiological services, had earlier commented that the SARS virus was probably man-made. The widespread reporting of claims by Kolesnokov and Filatov caused controversy in many Chinese internet discussion boards and chat rooms.

Asian lineage of Zika virus confirmed in a microcephaly case from Angola
Skip to main content. Authors V. Hari, M.
Researchers from the University of Oxford teamed up with the Angolan Ministry of Health to study the introduction and circulation of the Asian genotype of Zika virus in Angola, southwestern Africa. The Asian genotype caused the epidemic of microcephaly and other birth defects in the Americas. Up until now only the African lineage had been detected in Africa.
