NIH Scientists Track Zika Virus Transmission in Mice
Study analyzes how virus is spread sexually and from mother to fetus.

They are using the model to study how and when the virus is spread, including how the virus crosses the placenta, as well as to investigate potential treatments to block virus transmission.
