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.
