Virus infecting archaea from "extreme" environments: what we can learn from them

Hörsaal

Abstract

Archaea are present in environments that resemble early Earth, habe revealed novel lineages that are possible relics of an ancient past and offer insight into cellular evolution. By comparison, the evolution of virus, including their origin and relationship to other extrachromosomal elements and ancestral cellular life, is less certain. I have been studying virus from diverse 'extreme' environments including hot springs and Antarctic lakes and discovered novel virus and extrachromosomal elements possessing unique morphologies, genome content and interactions with their hosts. My studies aim to improve our understanding of viral evolution and virus-host relationship.
