I too think seeing genomic evolution occuring on a human time scale
is facinating, but also very sad for the victims.

As for other examples:
  what about the processes that occur when attenuated viruses are
  produced as vacines by serial passage through a different host
  organism?  Such as passing human viruses through chicken eggs?
  or are these two very dis-similar things?
