Episode 13: Evolutionary Arms Race

In this episode we take a closer
look at the evolutionary arms race between humans and the microbes
that make us sick. What does each side bring to the fight? Dr.
Pardis Sabeti of Harvard University is a computational biologist
who uses math and computers to look into the genomes of humans and
infectious microbes to see how both humans and microbes are
evolving. She was named one of TIME Magazine’s People of the Year
in 2014 for her role in the fight against ebola.
