RNA Viruses

At present we have efforts on three single-stranded RNA viruses.

The RNA genome of HIV has a very unusual secondary structure. We hope to understand how the RNA sequence is organized to give this structure

Our work on Pariacoto virus and STMV is aimed at understanding the pathways of viral assembly in these two model systems.

The full methods behind all of our viral modeling work are found in Harvey et al. (2011) Methods Enzymol 487:513-543 (PMID 21187237).
