Title: "The Evolutionary Potential of Poxviruses"

Nels Elde, PhD - University of Utah

Host: Virology Graduate Students/ Coordinator Nathan Meade, PhD (Lab of Derek Walsh)

Description:

We use experimental evolution, genomic analysis, and related approaches to investigate how poxviruses adapt to counteract host immune defenses. The work is revealing an array of recombination-driven processes and mechanisms of adaptation involving horizontal gene transfer. Our studies highlight the unique biology of poxvirus evolution.
