    Updates to the zoonotic niche map of Ebola virus disease in Africa

    David M Pigott et al.
    Building on previous work (Pigott et al. 2014), estimates of areas of potential transmission of Ebola virus are revised and updated to provide a contemporary map for use by researchers and policymakers.

    Mapping the zoonotic niche of Ebola virus disease in Africa

    David M Pigott et al.
    Understanding where future Ebola virus outbreaks may start and the changing nature of the populations living in these places is of critical importance in helping to prepare for future outbreaks.

    Ebola virus disease in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 1976-2014

    Alicia Rosello et al.
    Analysing a compilation of individual-level data gathered across the seven Ebola Virus Disease outbreaks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo reveals factors that contribute to the spread of the disease and mortality.

    Filovirus receptor NPC1 contributes to species-specific patterns of ebolavirus susceptibility in bats

    Melinda Ng et al.
    NPC1 is a genetic determinant of filovirus susceptibility in bats, and some variations in bat NPC1 may reflect host adaptations to reduce filovirus replication and virulence.

    Coupling adaptive molecular evolution to phylodynamics using fitness-dependent birth-death models

    David A Rasmussen, Tanja Stadler
    A new model describes how adaptive molecular evolution shapes phylogenetic trees and can be used to estimate the fitness effects of mutations from phylogenies.

    Epidemiological dynamics of Ebola outbreaks

    Thomas House
    The pattern of past Ebola outbreaks is indicative of an effective reproductive ratio of less than 1, which can lead to the generation of a range of outbreak sizes consistent with the scale of the ongoing epidemic.
