Virus Hunting with the Global Virome Project

EcoHealth Alliance was featured in a late June article in The Telegraph on their work to help catalog the genomic information of the 1.67 million viruses carried by animals and birds, of which it's estimated that between 600,000 and 800,000 have the potential to transition to humans. As climate changes stress animal habitats, food sources, or bring human and animals closer in novel ways, this risk increases. Read the article or see the Global Virome Project website.
