LIVING BEING. VIRUSES IN THE HISTORY OF LIFE ON EARTH
In collaboration with Camplus
Enzo Tramontano, Professor of Microbiology and Virology at University of Cagliari. Introduced by Andrea Caprotti, Student of Physics at University of Milan.
Viruses are living entities that, upon entering a host cell, take possession of it and exploit it to replicate themselves, in some cases leading to the death of the infected cell and also of the entire host organism. But where do viruses come from? How can they be blocked? Do they play a role in the ecosystem of our planet? Did they evolve with us or did we evolve with them?
