- Evidence that a plant virus switched hosts to infect a vertebrate and then recombined with a vertebrate-infecting virusM J Gibbs
Bioinformatics, Research School of Biological Sciences, The Australian National University, G P O Box 475, Canberra 2601, Australia
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:8022-7. 1999..All characterized caliciviruses infect vertebrates, suggesting that the host-switch happened first and that the recombination took place in a vertebrate...
- Phylogenetic analysis of some large double-stranded RNA replicons from plants suggests they evolved from a defective single-stranded RNA virusM J Gibbs
Bioinformatics, Research School of Biological Sciences, The Australian National University, GPO Box 475, Canberra 2601, Australia
J Gen Virol 81:227-33. 2000..In view of the affinities of the dsRNAs, we believe they should be classified as viruses and we suggest they be recognized as members of a new virus genus (Endornavirus) and family (Endoviridae)...
- Sister-scanning: a Monte Carlo procedure for assessing signals in recombinant sequencesM J Gibbs
Research School of Biological Sciences, The Australian National University, GPO Box 475, Canberra ACT 2601, Australia
Bioinformatics 16:573-82. 2000..To devise a method that, unlike available methods, directly measures variations in phylogenetic signals in gene sequences that result from recombination, tests the significance of the signal variations and distinguishes misleading signals...
- The haemagglutinin gene, but not the neuraminidase gene, of 'Spanish flu' was a recombinantM J Gibbs
School of Botany and Zoology, Faculty of Science, Australian National University, Australian Capital Territory 0200, Australia
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 356:1845-55. 2001..The recombination event that produced the 1918 HA gene probably coincided with the start of the pandemic, and may have triggered it...
- Recombination in the hemagglutinin gene of the 1918 "Spanish flu"M J Gibbs
Division of Botany and Zoology, Faculty of Science, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 2601, Australia
Science 293:1842-5. 2001..Phylogenetic analyses showed that this recombination, which probably changed the virulence of the virus, occurred at the start of, or immediately before, the pandemic and thus may have triggered it...
