Ebola and other filoviruses

For much of my professional life, I live and breathe (thankfully only metaphorically) filoviridae. They are some of the nastiest things on this planet (type species: marburg and ebolaviruses), and yet have an abiding fascination for me. It’s not morbid curiosity, but rather an acute awareness that you can’t fight what you don’t understand. With that in mind, here’s a summary of unclassified stuff I’ve said or written about Ebola. Most of these are intended for lay audiences, so feel free to dig in!
