Researchers Identify Openings for Shuttering Virus Factories

Banumathi Sankaran, a bioscientist in the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology at the Advanced Light Source, was part of a Baylor College of Medicine-led team that studied proteins involved in making the cytoplasmic compartments in which many DNA and RNA virus pathogens replicate. Understanding their molecular methods of construction could offer an avenue for disrupting virus production. More>
