Abstract

Many life-threatening viruses populate their hosts with a cocktail of different strains, which may mutateinsanely fast, protecting the virus from human immune response or medical treatment. Researchers atCWI have designed a method, named Virus-VariationGraph (Virus-VG) [3], that puts all strains onto agraphical map, which facilitates more reliable and convenient identification of potentially resistance-inducing or particularly lethal strains.
