FASEB announces 2014 Science Research Conference: Virus Structure and Assembly
Date:1/22/2014

Bethesda, MD This 2014 FASEB Science Research Conference focuses on structural virology and the application of structure to our understanding of the progression of events that are the virus lifecycle: receptor binding, entry, intracellular trafficking, uncoating, replication, assembly, and exit. Virus assembly includes the process of constructing virions and of marshaling host resources for that purpose.

Knowledge on virus structure and assembly can be used to develop new antiviral approaches and also to harness viruses to new purposes. For 2014, the underlying theme for the conference is the structural basis of how viruses interact with and respond to their environment. This FASEB Conference brings together structural virologists, geneticists, cell biologists, biochemists, and theoreticians who each investigate virus assembly using a wide array of techniques.

Typically over 30 different viruses and bacteriophages are discussed during the meeting though symposia, poster presentations, and short talks. These broaden our understanding of the molecular basis of viral disease processes, identify new targets for novel anti-viral treatments, and have contributed to the development of virus-derived nanoparticles. The mixture of state of the art approaches and varied experimental systems has led to new collaborations and new discoveries.
