Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "Using functional genomics to discover new facets of antiviral immunity"

Seminar | December 5 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall

Sara Cherry, University of Pennsylvania

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

Research in the Cherry lab is aimed at identifying cellular factors that regulate viral pathogenesis, including factors hijacked by viruses for replication and innate anti-viral mechanisms used by the host to combat the invader. We study a number of arthropod-borne RNA viruses, including flaviviruses such as West Nile virus, dengue virus and the newly emerging Zika virus. We are also studying the...   More >
