Readings in Viral Ecology

We will address recent advances in the empirical, experimental and theoretical investigation of the role of viruses in natural environments, spanning environmental to human systems. We will focus primarily on the viruses of microbes – such viruses are highly abundant and highly diverse and yet their functional roles remain poorly understood. Interactive discussion of papers will shed light on common principles and processes relevant to understanding viral ecology.
