MERS coronavirus: diagnostics, epidemiology and transmission
While the basic virology of MERS-CoV has advanced over the past three years, understanding of the interplay between camel, environment, and human remains limited. Expand
The emergence of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus
The emergence of a second highly pathogenic coronavirus within a decade highlights the importance of a coordinated global response incorporating reservoir surveillance, high‐containment capacity with fundamental and applied research programs, and dependable communication pathways to ensure outbreak containment.

Current diagnostic approaches to detect two important betacoronaviruses: Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)
This review aims to provide an up-to-date comparison of the advantages and limitations of different diagnostic approaches in detecting MERS- CoV and SARS-CoV-2 infections to help combat the transmission of these coronaviruses. Expand
MERS and global health governance

The data that underpin synthetic biology responses to the COVID-19 pandemic are analyzed as positional information goods—goods whose value depends on exclusivity. Expand
Portable sequencing, genomic data, and scale in global emerging infectious disease surveillance
A conception of a globally integrated stream of sequencing data as composed mostly of “noise” within which signals of pathogen “emergence” are “hidden” is called into question, considering it instead from the perspective of recent work into more‐than‐human geographies. Expand
