Science Cafe: Genetic Warfare

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Viruses and animals have been engaged in an evolutionary arms race for millions of years, evolving and counter-evolving in an attempt to get a leg up. At the January Queen Anne Science Cafe, join the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Greg Brennan, D.V.M., Ph.D., to discover how this conflict has led to changes in existing genes, outright theft of other genes, and even some cooperation between viruses and their hosts.
