Evolution

Evolution

Evolution shapes life at every scale, and it occurs whenever there are three simple building blocks: variation, heritability and differential reproduction.  This video looks at the evolution of viruses and bacteria as models (on a scale that is small and fast) to help understand how evolution works…and how understanding evolution is critical to understanding the microorganisms that are all around us and sometimes make us sick.

A PDF transcript of the video is available here. Use this link to download the video for offline viewing (right-click or command-click and choose to save the file).
