The Viral Evolution Group (located near the UCSD hospital in Hillcrest) studies computational and statistical models of evolution, with applications to viral pathogens and other systems. Solid programming skills and knowledge of probabilistic modeling (e.g. as covered in CSE250A and CSE250B) are required. There is no wet lab component.
