Studying the Molecular Mechanism of Viral Replication in Real Time

BMG Logo 2


Viruses are obligate intracellular pathogens that can infect all living organisms. The current global pandemic, as a result of SARS-CoV-2, is a perfect example of how detrimental a virus can be not only to human health but also economically. Viruses interact and hijack host cellular machineries to allow them to replicate and spread. A clear understanding of these host–virus interactions is crucial to uncover the molecular mechanisms underpinning infection and to enable the development of new treatments.
