This is a website for collaborative analysis and discussion about the emergence, evolution and epidemiology of novel human viral pathogens. The site is divided into sections for different viruses. The aim is to present new analyses as data becomes available.
All content is publically viewable but adding content, comments or blog entries is restricted to account holders.
Emerging viruses and new epidemics
Recently discovered and newly emerging viruses
