Genomic surveillance of avianorigin influenza A viruses causing human disease
Lam TT., Pybus OG.
© 2018 The Author(s). 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, costeffective approach for studying virus transmission, evolution, and dissemination, and has the potential to inform outbreak control efforts and policies.
