    ViralMSA: massively scalable reference-guided multiple sequence alignment of viral genomes

    August 31, 2021

    Virus Evolution and Molecular Epidemiology (VEME) Workshop 2021, Gainesville, Florida (virtual)

    Combating viral spread and their associated disease burden is a tremendous challenge requiring significant research efforts and dedicated measures, informing public health, veterinary care, and agriculture strategies. Viral sequence data is a major asset in the characterization of pathogens. Understanding the processes that generate genetic diversity assists in the struggle against viral infections and enhances our understanding of past evolutionary and epidemiological events. It can also help in the identification of the origins of new epidemics, in monitoring the effectiveness of therapeutic strategies, and eventually in predicting the behavior of viral epidemics. Advances in bioinformatics have led to improved approaches to investigating viral outbreaks that have been successfully applied to viruses including the Human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV), the Ebola virus, the Dengue and Zika viruses, the Chikungunya virus and the Influenza virus.
