In this paper we used travel surveillance and genomic epidemiology to answer a simple question – “in 2017, was the epidemic over?”. The short answer, is no – read the rest of the study for the long answer. The Zika…

An analysis by CViSB scientists at Scripps Research of billions of distinct antibody-producing immune cells sampled from human volunteers indicates that the human antibody “repertoire” is far larger than was once thought. The finding, reported online on January 21 in Nature, suggests that humans may be capable of producing as many as 10^18, or one quintillion, distinct antibodies. The study…
