Title: "The Evolutionary Potential of Poxviruses"

Nels Elde, PhD - University of Utah

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


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.
