PREDICT enables global surveillance of pathogens that can spillover from animal hosts to people by building capacities to detect and discover viruses of pandemic potential. The project is part of USAID’s Emerging Pandemic Threats program and is led by the UC Davis One Health Institute. Learn more about the project →


Below are descriptions of data in the pop-up windows and data table. To access the data table, click on the "List View" icon at the top right of the map.

Common Name: The English common name of the animal sampled.

Country: Name of the country where the sampling occurred.

Disease Transmission Interface: The field summarizes the context of potential human-animal contact (e.g., the epidemiological situation) where sampling occurred.

Genbank Entry: The link to the Genbank database for this virus sequence.

Interpretation: The interpretation describes the zoonotic potential and threat of the detected virus to human health.

Lat/Long: The GPS location in decimal degrees (to the centroid of the site for animals, to the centroid of the country for people) where the sampling occurred. Centroids protect the privacy of sampled individuals.

Number of Animals Sampled: The number of animals sampled at this location

Project: The PREDICT-1 (P1) was implemented Oct 1, 2008 – Sept 30, 2014. PREDICT-2 (P2) was implemented Oct 1, 2014 – Sept 30, 2019.

Sample Date: The start date of when sampling began.

Species Scientific Name (* indicates the species name was confirmed by barcoding): The scientific name of the animal sampled. If complete genus species is unknown, this will be the next known level of taxonomic classification (i.e. genus, subfamily, family). If not followed by an asterisk, the scientific name is based on field morphology.

Taxa Group: Taxonomic description of animal sampled (e.g., bat, rodent, non-human primate).

Virus: The name of the virus detected in the sample.
