Latest RNA viruses Stories
Study Suggests Targeting Molecular Interaction of Virus and Host Protein May Arrest This Lethal Virus New York, NY (PRWEB) March 13, 2014 A protein that
Researchers at the University of Warwick have sequenced an ancient RNA genome for the first time ever. The RNA belonged to a barley virus once thought to be just 150 years old, but has now been determined to date back at least 2,000 years.
A virus that typically infects plants has been found to infect honeybees and could be responsible for the widespread collapse of honeybee colonies.
Understanding how viral proteins are produced can provide important clues on how we might interfere with the process.
Among eukaryotes with modified nuclear genetic codes, viruses are unknown.
The Ebola, Marburg and Lassa viruses are commonly referred to as emerging diseases, but leading scientists say these life-threatening viruses have been around for centuries.
Researchers at Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) have created an ultra-sensitive biosensor capable of identifying the smallest single virus particles in solution, an advance that may revolutionize early disease detection in a point-of-care setting and shrink test result wait times from weeks to minutes.
