Seminar

The evolution of pathogen evolution

Wood, J; Gog, J (University of Cambridge)
Monday 19 August 2013, 16:00-17:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

Abstract

Starting from the writeup from the working groups from the 1993 INI meeting, we explore how the modelling of pathogen variability and evolution has developed in the last 20 years. We focus particularly on antigenic evolution, such as for influenza, and the role of pathogen evolution in the emergence of zoonotic infections. Finally, we propose that current technological advances are offering future challenges in modelling pathogen evolution.
