Ever wonder how does a virus coordinate all the steps needed to make a new particle? Our lab studies the viral and host determinants required for alphavirus assembly and spread. Alphaviruses are arboviruses—they are transmitted from a mosquito to a vertebrate—so we focus on how the assembly determinants are conserved or differ in these two hosts. We use a variety of approaches to study assembly including viral and host genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, and structural biology. For details, see our lab website.
