Viral capsids typically self-assemble around the viral genome in the host cytoplasm. This feed focuses on mechanisms that play a role in packaging viral DNA into the capsid.
Adjuvants systems that are added to vaccines against avian influenza have be explored to enhance the innate immune system response against the virus. Here is the latest research on avian influenza and the innate immune adjuvant.
This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that affect virus-host interactions. Here is the latest research.
Chaperones are proteins that play an essential role in protein folding, stability, assembly, and degradation. Their depletion or dysfunction has been implicated in protein folding disorders. Here is the latest research.
Development of gene editing techniques, including CRISPR and TALENs, has relied on mechanisms that underlie DNA repair and genome stability pathways. This feed focuses on the role of DNA repair mechanisms in gene editing and genetic engineering.
Dengue Virus, a mosquito transmitted pathogen, is the causative agent of dengue fever, the most important arboviral disease of humans, which affects an estimated 50-100 million people annually. Discover the latest research here.
The recent ebola outbreak in west Africa has stressed the need for advances in research to develop a vaccine against this deadly virus. Much progress has been made in pre-clinical and clinical studies and future vaccines for the ebola virus look promising. Here is the latest research on ebola vaccines.
Ebola Virus causes ebola virus disease, and is one of the deadliest pathogens known to man, with a mortality rate between 25-90% depending on the species and outbreak of ebola. Discover the latest research on Ebola Virus.
Emerging Infectious Diseases are defined as those whose incidence in humans has increased in the past two decades or threaten to increase in the near future. Discover the latest research on Emerging Infectious Diseases.
