A website for the rapid sharing of influenza research
"The successful development of open access publishing by organizations including the Public Library of Science (PLoS) in recent years is a dramatic illustration of how the Internet is revolutionizing scientific communication.
In August 2009, after several months of work, I’m delighted to announce that PLoS is launching PLoS Currents (Beta) — a new and experimental website for the rapid communication of research results and ideas.
In response to the recent worldwide H1N1 influenza outbreak, the first PLoS Currents research theme is influenza."

Searching For The Swine Flu
http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/04/29/searching-for-the-swine-flu/
Searching For The Swine Flu
"One way to possibly track the spread of the swine flu is to look at where spikes in search activity around related terms is occurring. Google already does this with its Google Flu Trends, and has now extended that analysis on an experimental basis to Mexico with a site it just put up called Experimental Flu Trends For Mexico. These maps represent Google’s estimates of actual flu outbreaks based on correlations between search activity and how many of those people are really sick."

Avian Flu Under the Microscope

Avian Flu Under the Microscope
Thnkquest student project
We felt that it was important for our readers to understand what exactly this "Avian Flu" virus is, what is it's potential danger to human, what is being done globally to combat this disease, where it has traveled, and more importantly what our readers can do to protect themselves. You can start by following the links to the individual sections of the web site, which each address a specific topic about the avian flu. These topics are:
| virus | disease | transmission | vaccine | situation |
As a team this was our goal, to raise awareness and educate others through this web site. By looking closely at the virus and its movement, providing information from around the world, we can give ordinary people a way they can combat this Flu. This is crucial, as the prevention and control of the avian flu in certain situations is determined by the actions of the people.
We built our web site for young adults, age 15 and up, who are interested to learn, in more detail, about avian flu.
