New article on fitness of influenza proteins appeared in PLoS Pathogens
Review article on predictive modeling of human influenza appeared in Trends in Microbiology
New paper on the evolution of gene expression appeared in Cell Reports. Using a new statistical inference method, we show that adaptive evolution of expression is pervasive across the Drosophila genus.
A perspective article on predicting evolution appeared in Nature Ecology and Evolution. We undertake a synthesis of central concepts fpr evolutionary predictions, based on examples of microbial and viral systems, cancer cell populations, and immune receptor repertoires.
