VZV Replication Assays
Authors:  Samantha J. Griffiths and Jürgen Haas, date: 08/20/2014, view: 9461, Q&A: 0
Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a human herpesvirus which causes Varicella (chickenpox) upon primary infection and Zoster (shingles) following reactivation from latency (von Bokay, 1909). Whilst VZV is extensively studied, inherent features of VZV ...
siRNA Screening for Genes Involved in HSV-1 Replication
Authors:  Samantha J. Griffiths and Jürgen Haas, date: 08/20/2014, view: 9011, Q&A: 0
Small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are small (typically 18-24 nucleotides) RNA molecules capable of silencing gene expression post-transcriptionally and as such, they provide a simple method by which the role of individual genes in complex cellular ...
