An improved view of influenza evolution with CoalRe
“Accounting for reassortment events reduces bias in influenza inference”. In this in silico talk, SIB’s Ugnė Stolz from Tanja Stadler’s Group at ETH Zurich introduces CoalRe, a framework enabling to take into account reassortment when inferring virus evolution and infection pathways. In a recent paper published in PNAS, the team showed that this framework permits better estimates of effective population size and evolutionary rates. CoalRe is freely available as an add-on to the BEAST2 phylogenetic software.
