Genomic analysis of respiratory syncytial virus infections in households and utility in inferring who infects the infant

Abstract:

Infants (under 1-year-old) are at most risk of life threatening respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease. RSV epidemiological data alone has been insufficient in defining who acquires infection from whom (WAIFW) within households.
