Selection on non-antigenic gene segments of seasonal influenza A virus and its impact on adaptive evolution
Most studies on seasonal influenza A/H3N2 virus adaptation have focused on the main antigenic gene, hemagglutinin. However, there is increasing evidence that the genome-wide genetic background of novel antigenic variants can influence these variants' emergence probabilities and impact their patterns of dominance in the population. This suggests that non-antigenic genes may be important in shaping the viral evolutionary dynamics. To better understand the role of selection on non-antigenic gene...Expand abstract
