We have examined the rate of evolution of Ross River virus, a mosquito-borne RNA virus, during epidemic spread through tens of thousands of nonimmune humans over a period of 10 months. Two regions of the Ross River virus genome were sequenced: the E2 gene (1.2 kb in length), which encodes the major neutralization determinant of the virus, and 0.4 kb of the 3'-untranslated region. In the E2 gene, a single nucleotide change was selected which led to a predicted amino acid change at residue 219… CONTINUE READING
