Professor Santiago Elena, one of the profs who presented at the Viral Evolution conference I went to last fall, is featured in a nifty video about watching evilution in action!
Evolution of Life: Evolution before our eyes
Just like I use evilution in the lab to understand the population dynamics of HIV-1 to create an HIV-1 vaccine, Dr. Elena uses evolution to understand how viruses evolve and adapt in plants, which will help us protect our crops.
Evolution isnt just about retarded monkey-fish-frogs. Understanding it has a direct impact on your quality of life.
