Predicting Reservoir Hosts and Arthropod Vectors from Evolutionary Signatures in RNA Virus Genomes

Simon A. Babayan, Richard J. Orton and Daniel G. Streicker

Background

A series of scripts and datasets described in Babayan et al. (2018) Science doi: 10.1126/science.aap9072 which predict the reservoir hosts, existence of arthropod vectors and identity of arthropod vectors using gradient boosting machines.

File descriptions

Datasets:

BabayanEtAl_sequences.fasta contains coding sequences for all viruses used in the analyses

EbolaTimeSeriesData.csv contains epidemiological data and genomic features for Zaire ebolaviruses sampled during the 2014-2016 West African outbreak

BabayanEtAl_VirusData.csv contains reservoir host, arthropod-borne transmission status and vector taxa for all ssRNA viruses analyzed and features extracted from the genome of each virus

R scripts:
