Evolution and Genomics of Viruses

Adi Stern



Our group studies the evolutionary arms-race of viruses and their hosts. We use a highly multidisciplinary approach spanning evolutionary theory, computational biology, and “wet” lab experimental evolution. These are some of the questions we try to answer:

  • How do viruses adapt to constantly changing environments?
  • How does the host immune system keep up?
  • Can we predict the future course of viral evolution?
  • More…
