Adapting bacteriophage model systems to advanced experimental techniques

Monday 19 February 2018, 1.00PM

Speaker(s): Professor Paul Jardine

Bacteriophage systems have been used as tools in the exploration of fundamental biological processes for many decades. Whereas the relative simplicity of phage systems allow for a well-controlled experimental approach, the near-universal nature of the processes inherent to their assembly make them relevant to a broad range of biological systems. I will provide a brief overview of recent advances in the study of the bacteriophage phi29 DNA packaging system, driven by an integrated biochemical, structural, and single-molecule approach, and discuss the impact on the wider field of virology and biophysics.
