The Invisible Arms Race: evolutionary competition between humans and microorganisms. Organisms in all kingdoms of life are constantly evolving to gain advantages over their environmental combatants. Our own competition against viruses and bacteria is a critical concern for public health and disease. This course will focus on historical and current research about evolutionary arms races between humans and microorganisms. Course topics will include viral evolution, vaccine and antiviral drug development, antibiotic resistance, and the search for new antibiotics. This course will be taught using a combination of assigned homework, class discussions of assigned reading, in-class quizzes, open forum group discussions and worksheets, and journal-club group presentations, with an emphasis on active team-based learning. A primary goal of this course is to improve students’ ability to think critically, interpret data, and discuss primary scientific literature.
