Project: Identification and characterization of viral and host factors that are involved in de pathogenicity of influenza A virus
- project duration
- 01-MAY-10 – 28-FEB-13
- The pathogenicity of influenza A viruses is determined by the genetic composition of the virus and its host, but the molecular mechanisms are largely unknown. By applying a comparative genetic and proteomics analysis of the infection process of a low- and highly-pathogenic influenza A virus, we aim to identify novel pathogenicity determining factors.
