Experimental evolution of viruses, mutation rates, virus-host interactions, oncolytic viruses

In our lab at the Science Park of the University of Valencia (find us), we study virus evolution from an experimental approach. Currently, we are investigating how mutation and selection shape the variability and evolution of human viruses and other model viruses. We are also interested in exploring the use of viruses as anti-cancer therapeutic agents. My current interests are focusing on the analysis of virus-virus interactions.
