Time:6-8 p.m.
Description:Science in the Pub presents Ancient Virus Hunter Robert Gifford and Virus Forecaster Sara Sawyer. Approximately 10 percent of the human genome is composed of virus DNA. Nobody knows where these viruses came from, but it is becoming apparent that they have been an incredible evolutionary force for millions of years. Evolutionary biologists Robert Gifford and Sara Sawyer team up to provide a glimpse into the past and future of virus evolution.

Gifford and Sawyer both investigate long-term relationships between viruses and humans, revealing secrets about how we have managed to withstand a constant onslaught of virus threats throughout our history. You won't believe the incredible amount of virus diversity in the world today and the imminent threat that these tiny microbes pose. Come with us into the world of paleovirology, where viruses that are millions of years old have once again caught our attention.

Science in the Pub was founded in spring 2010 by University of Texas at Austin graduate students. We provide a uniquely enjoyable environment where scientists and nonscientists can come together to celebrate science from the Austin community and beyond. We hope to lift the veil on scientific discovery and bring together folks from all walks of life to discuss science over a few frosty beverages.
Location:Austin's Pizza on Guadalupe
