We are pleased to inform you on the seminar by Dr Bunpote Siridechadilok (hosted by Prof Paul Matsudaira) “From translation initiation of hepatitis C virus to dengue genome replication”. The details are as follows:
From translation initiation of hepatitis C virus to dengue genome replication
Date: 27 February 2017 (Monday)
Venue: Seminar Room S2-04-15
Abstract: For a positive-sense RNA virus, viral RNA can function as both messenger RNA and the template for genome replication. Many positive-sense RNA viruses such as hepatitis C virus (HCV), dengue, and Zika have been major problems for global public health. In this talk, I will present the results from single-particle cryo-EM analysis of translation initiation complex used by hepatitis C virus and from our ongoing efforts to characterize dengue replication complex.
All are welcome.
