With Ben Wilson, Nandita Garud, Alison Feder and Zoe Assaf, I wrote a review paper about population genetics and drug resistance. It was a lot of fun to write this paper and I feel like I learned a lot during the process.
We wrote about drug resistance in influenza, malaria, TB, MRSA and HIV. It turns out that each of these case studies have something unique to teach us about evolution.
The paper is now out in Molecular Ecology. You can also download it here: 2015Wilson_et_al-Molecular_Ecology.
We made five short movies about the paper. Have a look at the one you are most interested in!
