Work on Ebola from Andrew Rambaut and Gytis Dudas (Inst. Evolutionary Biology) featured in Scotsman article

Work carried out by Gytis Dudas and Andrew Rambaut in the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at Kings Buildings, was recently featured in the Scotsman. 

The article highlights the contributions of Edinburgh researchers to efforts to combat the current outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa.

Gytis and Andrew were part of an international team of researchers that analysed the genome sequences of Ebola viruses isoloated from patients in Sierra Leone.  Their data suggests that the current epidemic stems from a single introduction of the Ebola virus into humans in Guinea, and that the cases in Sierra Leone are caused by this same strain of the virus.
