Human adenoviruses within species D evolve principally through homologous recombination during co-infections. Recently, species D adenoviruses have undergone a rapid expansion, with severe consequences for infected patients. The student will develop in vitro models of viral co-infection to identify basic mechanisms of genetic recombination among human adenoviruses. This project may involve basic bioinformatics as well as wet bench methods.
