Studying the Molecular Mechanism of Viral Replication in Real Time
Application Note Feb 04, 2021
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.
