Science for All Seasons: Genomics, COVID-19, and us

To understand and control COVID-19, we need to look at two genomes: that of the virus that causes it, and our own. Human geneticist Benjamin Neale discuss the emerging understanding of how our DNA influences our body's response to the virus, and viral geneticist Bronwyn MacInnis talks about what the growing science of genomic epidemiology continues to teach us about the evolution and spread of viral variants.

This lecture is presented in memory of Eliana Hechter and is supported by the Eliana Hechter Memorial Fund.
