PODCAST : Trajectoires évolutives des virus : convergence, adaptation et dynamique

Pour son projet de thèse, Marie Morel cherche à mettre au point des méthodes de bioinformatique pour détecter des formes d’adaptation chez les virus et notamment dans un premier temps des mutations de convergence.  Les mutations de convergence sont des mutations qui apparaissent plusieurs fois au cours de l’évolution de manière indépendante. Elles ne sont donc pas héritées d’un ancêtre commun mais sont le fruit d’une même forme d’adaptation en raison de contraintes environnementales fortes.
