Movie Stars

The Morran lab makes its acting and directing debut in “The Red Queen Game.” Signe White and McKenna Penley star as hand models, and our lab bench stars as the background. Thanks to Josh Kushner for the original score!

Mandy Gibson created this video to show teachers and students how to play the Red Queen Game in their classrooms. The game is a simple and hands-on way to teach host-parasite coevolution and test the hypothesis that host-parasite coevolution maintains genetic variation. The open-access publication describing the game and its underlying concepts can be found here, and additional resources are available on Mandy’s site.
