Ebola viruses passaged in bat renal cells appeared to be subject to RNA editing by host enzymes, while more adaptive mutations arose after passaging in a human kidney cell line.

Based on expression patterns in mouse strains with variable infection susceptibility, investigators came up with a signature that predicted Ebola virus response in West Africa patients.

Researchers trained a machine-learning model to predict animal reservoirs or insect vectors for dozens of "orphan" viruses with unknown natural sources.

In PNAS this week: population structure in Helicoverpa, AMP-activated protein kinase levels in nicotine-exposed mice, and more.

The researchers found that the expression of certain genes was better at helping them predict when Ebola would develop than indications of infection like fever.
