Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "A novel mechanism for viral host-range expansion revealed through experimental evolution"
Seminar | October 10 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Justin Meyer, UC San Diego
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.
