Tracking the Evolution and Spread of the 2009 Influenza H1N1 'Swine Flu' Outbreak

The current swine flu outbreak is being tracked in many different ways. News reports are being aggregated into an overall geographic story about the spread of the virus: see for example the http://flutracker.rhizalabs.com/ page and http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=109496610648025582911.0004686892fbefe515012&source=embed&ll=35.487978,-58.414994&spn=72.073726,116.191406&z=3.

In addition to the tracking of news reports, sequence data are being released at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/FLU/SwineFlu.html and http://platform.gisaid.org. These data are being tracked and subjected to cutting-edge molecular analysis at the [[Human/Swine A/H1N1 Influenza Origins and Evolution|http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/groups/influenza/] site.
