Evolution & Health: Experimental Evolution

virus UVP.I.: Rafael Sanjuán

Research interests

We study the processes of spontaneous mutation in viruses, since these are the ultimate source of genetic variation and a key factor determining their great variability and adaptability. We are also interested in how virus-virus social-like interactions shape viral diversity and evolution.

2Research organisms

viruses, including vesicular stomatitis virus, hepatitis C virus, HIV, and bacteriophages.
