Location: Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 5BD, UK.

Event description

Wolbachia bacteria live inside parasitic worms and insects. To ensure their own survival, the bacteria manipulate their host using a surprising range of tricks. They can change their host's sex, help it fight off infections and play an active role in the evolution of new species, presenting complex challenges to scientists.

Join a Natural History Museum medical entomologist to find out how researchers are trying to trick these tricky bacteria and control the diseases.

Part of the Natural Diversity Season.
