Seminar | October 10 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall

 Justin Meyer, UC San Diego

 Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

What changes to viral genomes would allow them to infect new species? And, what are the natural processes – mutation, recombination, and natural selection – that permit their evolution?

The Meyer Lab uses experimental evolution of viruses to find answers to these questions using a combination of methods from many fields of biology.

For a complete explanation of Meyer's research and a...   More >
