Ebola Scare: New Online 3D Tool Developed to Help Researchers Develop Vaccines

Johns Hopkins biomedical engineers have developed a free, Internet tool that could speed up the creation of new drugs to treat Ebola virus infections and take preventive steps as well. The software, called MuPIT Ebola Edition, enables a researcher to visualize Ebola gene mutations with 3-D protein structures, offers views of anti-body binding sites or epitopes on protein surfaces. These ...

New method to sequence genomes of the Ebola,makes surveillance quicker

A new cost-effective method to sequence genomes of the Ebola virus may eventually lead to quicker surveillance of the disease and effectively keep track of the outbreak even with limited resources. “Since the cost of preparation and sequencing is relatively low, and samples are the most precious commodity, our approach provides a great initial strategy for sequencing viral samples,” said ...
