The current workshop will discuss the evolution of life. We will use the example of viruses, with a special mention to SARS-CoV-2, to demonstrate that evolution that is at work continuously from the molecular to the human level (Dr. Vicky Nicolaidou). Dr. Iris Charalambidou will then give an overview of the evolution of humans.
