Evolution: Flu fitness model may inform vaccine selection

  • Linda Koch
  • Published 2014 in Nature Reviews Genetics


A new fitness model has been developed that predicts evolution of the seasonal human influenza A/H3N2 virus from genomic data. The model is based on the fitness effects of mutations in antibody-binding epitope and in non-epitope regions of haemagglutinin, which is a surface protein of the virus. Beneficial mutations in epitopes and harmful (that is… (More)
