Biologically Inspired Strategy for the Assembly of Viral Building Blocks with Controlled Dimensions.

Rego, Jennifer.


  • Abstract: I demonstrate the assembly of nanoscale viral building blocks of controlled lengths using a biologically motivated strategy. To achieve this I exploit the simple assembly mechanism of Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), whose length is solely governed by the length of its genomic mRNA, using both the wildtype and genetically engineered (displaying cysteine residues) forms of the virus. The ... read more
