Early characterization is essential to control the spread of emerging viruses, such as the Zika Virus outbreak in 2014. A major challenge is the identification of potential hosts for novel viruses. We introduce an algorithm to identify the host range of a virus from its raw genome sequence that will be a useful tool to understand host-virus relationships.
