Zika surveillance study in Cell

A new CViSB study investigating smoldering 'hidden' outbreaks of Zika in the Americas was published on the cover of Cell. 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…

CViSB Year in Review

The first year of CViSB has been a busy one. Receiving the NIH grant in February, 2018 prompted the onboarding of new scientists, research trips to West Africa, and a myriad of planning and coordination meetings. Samples from over 250 Lassa and Ebola patients were collected during trips to Kenema Government Hospital (KGH). The samples will be used to generate…

Can humans produce a quintillion antibodies?

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…

SysBio workshop

We are pleased to announce the first annual CViSB Systems Biology workshop February 20-22, 2019 in La Jolla, CA. The workshop will focus on viral systems biology and the application of phylogenetic methods on the study of viruses. In addition, participants will hear from expert science communicators about the importance of effectively conveying scientific findings to the public. Leading infectious…
