Ten Things Not Known About Viruses!
Sponsored by: Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
Viruses are everywhere: in our food, in water, in the soil, in us! The hundreds of viruses we encounter every day rarely cause us any harm. In fact, they can be essential for the lives of their hosts and are incorporated into our genomes in massive numbers. Join Marilyn Roossinck for an introduction to the amazing life of viruses, their simplicity and complexity, their ability to strike fear, and their sheer beauty. You’ll have a new perspective on viruses that is rarely told, and be enlightened on why viruses are often not something to fear, but to admire. Reception and book signing to follow.
