In this week's Science, scientists from the University of Glasgow report the creation of a computer model that uses genomic data to investigate outbreaks of RNA virus infections. They created a dataset containing the genome sequences of more than 500 single-stranded RNA viruses to which they applied machine learning to build models that predict the animal reservoirs and arthropod vectors of the pathogens.
