    Integrating influenza antigenic dynamics with molecular evolution

    Trevor Bedford et al.
    Combined antigenic and genetic analysis shows that different strains of the human influenza virus display dramatically different rates of antigenic drift, and that these differences have a significant impact on the number of new infections in each flu season.

    Integrating genotypes and phenotypes improves long-term forecasts of seasonal influenza A/H3N2 evolution

    John Huddleston et al.
    The combination of phenotypic measures of antigenic drift and genotypic measures of functional constraint improves the accuracy of long-term seasonal influenza A/H3N2 forecasts.

    Mapping person-to-person variation in viral mutations that escape polyclonal serum targeting influenza hemagglutinin

    Juhye M Lee et al.
    Single viral mutations can escape polyclonal human immunity to influenza hemagglutinin, but different mutations escape the immunity of different people.

    Asynchrony between virus diversity and antibody selection limits influenza virus evolution

    Dylan H Morris et al.
    Despite the virus' error prone polymerase, influenza virus antigenic evolution is rare, even in previously immune hosts, virus replication occurs before producing new antibodies.

    The global antigenic diversity of swine influenza A viruses

    Nicola S Lewis et al.
    Swine populations worldwide are sporadically infected by influenza viruses from humans and birds leading to geographically heterogeneous swine influenza virus populations that pose epizootic and pandemic threats.

    Stochastic processes constrain the within and between host evolution of influenza virus

    John T McCrone et al.
    An analysis of influenza viruses from naturally infected people suggests a tight transmission bottleneck and little positive selection within hosts.

    Seasonal Influenza: The challenges of vaccine strain selection

    Amanda C Perofsky, Martha I Nelson
    New measures of influenza virus fitness could improve vaccine strain selection through more accurate forecasts of the evolution of the virus.

    The contrasting phylodynamics of human influenza B viruses

    Dhanasekaran Vijaykrishna et al.
    The analysis of the genomes of two lineages of influenza B virus (Victoria and Yamagata) reveal that their phylodynamics are fundamentally different, and are determined by a complex relationship between virus transmission, age of infection and receptor binding preference.

    Evidence for adaptive evolution in the receptor-binding domain of seasonal coronaviruses OC43 and 229e

    Kathryn E Kistler, Trevor Bedford
    Phylogenetic and computational methods reveal that at least two seasonal coronaviruses are evolving adaptively in the region of the viral spike protein exposed to the human humoral immune system.
