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 >
