Publisher's Summary

What made the recent Ebola outbreak in west Africa so virulent? The virus that seeped across borders and killed more than 11,000 people in the region had at least one genetic mutation that better equipped it to breach human cells, new research suggests. The startling discovery provides the first evidence that genetic changes likely sped up transmission—and may have made the terrifying disease even more deadly for humans.

"Ebola's West African Rampage Was Likely Bolstered by a Mutation" is from scientificamerican.com, published on November 3, 2016.
