Coronavirus tracking its deadly tactics inside our cells
We know alarmingly little about the biological tricks that make this coronavirus so deadly. But scientists are beginning to piece together how the virus works once it has invaded our cells. Understanding this process could reveal new ways to tackle the infection and give us a head start against future coronavirus strains.
By delving deep into the virus’s biology Professor David Tollervey’s research group, in the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology, hope to reveal the sophisticated strategies that allow it to hijack our cells and turn them into virus factories.
