Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "A novel mechanism for viral host-range expansion revealed through experimental evolution"
Justin Meyer, UC San Diego
12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 101, Barker Hall
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.
