Wonderlust Class: New Ways to Think About Viruses

3:00 pm–5:00 pm, Friday, October 21st
Museum of the Rockies

Most of us think of viruses as disease-causing agents that are to be feared and fought. While some viruses do cause important human illnesses, many play beneficial roles in widely varying ecosystems. This program examines new discoveries about viruses and the roles they play in systems ranging from the human body to the boiling hot spring environments of Yellowstone National Park.

Dr. Mark Young is a nationally and internationally recognized expert in environmental virology. He and his lab of student researchers focus on the discovery, characterization and utilization of new viruses from extreme environments.
