America has begun a $10m project making a vaccine to a deadly cousin of the Ebola virus considered a potential bioterrorism weapon. Finding a way to stop Marburg virus is “an urgent public health and biodefence need”, the US government said. The haemorrhagic fever virus has caused a string of deadly outbreaks in Africa since it was discovered in the 1960s. Several outbreaks have had high mortality rates, killing four-out-of-five infected. “In addition to the threat of naturally occurring infection, the Marburg virus, like Ebola, is deemed a potential bioterrorism threat by the US Department of Homeland Security,” a statement said. The US government's Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) has awarded a two-year, $10 million contract to a Massachusetts-based biotech firm to work on the vaccine.

A new computational method called 'CATCH' designs molecular 'baits' for any virus known to infect humans and all their known strains, including those that are present in low abundance in clinical samples, such as Zika. The approach can help small sequencing centers around the globe conduct disease surveillance, which is crucial for controlling outbreaks.

In a context of overuse of insecticides, which leads to the selection of resistant mosquitoes, it is already known that this resistance to insecticides affects interactions between mosquitoes and the pathogens they transmit. Researchers demonstrate that mechanisms of insecticide resistance, observed in Culex quinquefasciatus vector, impact the transmission of West Nile virus.
