This Week in Virology features another PLoS Pathogens article

On the Dec. 6th TWiV podcast, Vincent Racaniello and Dickson Despommier discuss the symbiotic bacterium Wolbachia, the origin of the 2009 influenza H1N1 virus, and ‘the lure of original antigenic sin.’

In the course of this podcast they discuss not only the recent PLoS Pathogens article “Variation in Antiviral Protection Mediated by Different Wolbachia Strains in Drosophila simulans”, but articles from PLoS Biology and PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases as well:

PLoS Biology“The Bacterial Symbiont Wolbachia Induces Resistance to RNA Viral Infections in Drosophila melanogaster
