Chemists at the University of Utah have found that the Zika virus has a similar genetic structure to that of other viruses in the Flaviviridae family, such as dengue virus, yellow fever virus and West Nile virus. Researchers are looking closely at the molecular structure of the genes affected see whether an antiviral could tackle the specific virus. We might not need to worry anymore about this spreading virus. However, developing targeted drugs that are approved for human use can take a while, so be on the lookout!
