Genomic Insights into Zika Virus Emergence and Spread.Cell. 2018 03 08; 172(6):1160-1162.Cell
The emergence and spread of Zika virus in the Americas continues to challenge our disease surveillance systems. Virus genome sequencing during the epidemic uncovered the timescale of Zika virus transmission and spread. Yet, we are only beginning to explore how genomics can enhance our responses to emerging viruses.
