    S2Ep5: Variants in Viruses

    S2Ep5: Variants in Viruses

    In this episode, hosts Dr. Sabah Kadri and Arshi Arora talk about variants in viruses - what are these variants, how are they created, how do we detect them and how normal is it for viruses to evolve into new variants. We also discuss their lineage and phylogeny which plays an important role in naming these variants. We use the examples of SARS-CoV-2 and 1918-1919 Influenza pandemic to discuss these topics.

    S2Ep3: Dog Genetics

    S2Ep3: Dog Genetics

    In this episode, hosts Dr. Sabah Kadri and Arshi Arora discuss the genetics of our cute furry friends, the effects of domestication on natural selection and how years of in-breeding have led to the study of clear mappings between dog traits and gene variants. Our hosts gave each other a task to come up with some interesting traits and their genetic markers. A must listen.
