In Cell this week: B cell responses in Ebola survivors, two mRNA anti-terminator proteins, and more.

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.

The Fraunhofer USA team will partner with a Fraunhofer Society institute in Germany in order to reduce the cost for its patented microchip that detects viruses including Ebola.

The German company said the open-access platform, called Pharos V8, can provide real-time PCR results in 10 minutes.   

An OpenArray panel designed to simultaneously test for 17 viruses and 13 bacteria and protozoa was able to detect pathogens from human blood donor samples with an accuracy of about 95 percent.

Presenters at ASM have used next-generation sequencing to examine Ebola, Zika, and respiratory virus infection and transmission.
