Modelling host evolutionary responses to infection

Johns, Sophie

Description

Infectious diseases are pervasive, producing strong evolutionary pressure on their hosts. Often epidemiological models focus on pathogen evolution because they have short lifespans relative to their hosts. However, pathogens also impose strong selective pressure on their hosts. With prolonged exposure to pathogens host populations adapt to pathogen's selection pressure. Host evolution could occur in a variety of ways - from minimising infection costs to disease avoidance.
