Swine Flu

"Since the virus had not evolved since 1950 -- which is unusual -- and because scientists were examining swine flu viruses in light of a small, confined outbreak in Fort Dix, N.J., the previous year, Zimmer believes the infection was caused by an accidental release of a frozen sample preserved for study"

"The National Institutes of Health, which paid for the Pitt research, will use it to learn more about how to write computer programs that predict the emergence of diseases and the best ways to head off their spread, said James Anderson, program director at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, a division of NIH."
