Pas­sion for Un­der­stand­ing Vir­uses at Mo­lecu­lar Level

Our research aims at molecular level understanding of the functions of viruses and how viruses interact with their host cells. In addition, we investigate how sequence or structural similarity reflects the common evolution of viruses which are infecting different cellular domains of life. We are part of the Molecular and Integrative Biosciences Research Programme at the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences. Read more on our website
