Virus-Host Interactions

Viruses display remarkable specificity in both the host species and the cell types that they infect.

TWiV 141: Mickey gets HCV

Matt Evans joins Vincent, Rich, Dickson, and Alan to deconstruct a mouse model for hepatitis C virus infection.

Research technique: The murine candidate

Small animals that mimic human hepatitis C infection will help researchers pinpoint weakness in the viral life cycle.
