CEND (Center for Emerging & Neglected Diseases)


Emerging and neglected diseases are a group of debilitating and often deadly infections. As a group, these diseases are poorly understood and generally lack effective tools for prevention, control, and treatment. CEND Annual Symposium aims to strengthen connections between San Francisco Bay Area scientists working on infectious diseases of global health importance and the broader global health...   More >

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: "Evolutionary dynamics in rapidly adapting microbial populations"

Seminar | May 3 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Michael Desai, Harvard University

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


Natural selection and other evolutionary forces lead to particular patterns of evolutionary dynamics, and they leave characteristic signatures on the genetic variation within populations. We use a combination of theory and experiments to study the dynamics and population genetics of natural selection in asexual populations such as microbes and viruses.
