Description
Tanya Malhotra Lecture 22 – Arms Races and Virulence – Independent Study Outcomes 1. Factors influencing why some pathogens (disease-causing organisms) evolve towards greater virulence (harmfulness)  If pathogens don’t need host to be transmitted, natural selection will favour pathogens that are more harmful and will exploit the host  Bacteria that are transmitted by water evolve to be more harmful because water-borne pathogens don’t need hosts to be transmitted 2. How reducing a pathogen's opportunity for water-borne and vector-borne transmission is predicted to affect its virulence  If you reduce the pathogen’s opportunity for water-borne transmission then the pathogen will evolve to be milder o Possible solution for water-borne pathogens:
More Less
