LONDON (Reuters): Genetic sequence data on two of the deadliest yet most poorly understood viruses are to be made available to researchers worldwide in real time as scientists seek to speed up understanding of Ebola and MERS infections. The project hopes to encourage laboratories around the world to use the live data - updated as new cases emerge - to find new ways to diagnose and treat the killer diseases, and ideally, ultimately, prevent them. ‘The collective expertise of the world’s infectious disease experts is more powerful than any single lab.’
