West Nile Virus Fitness Costs in Different Mosquito Species

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

West Nile virus (WNV) remains an important public health problem causing annual epidemics in the United States. Grubaugh et al. observed that WNV genetic divergence is dependent on the vector mosquito species. This suggests that specific WNV vector-bird species pairings may generate novel genotypes that could promote outbreaks.
