Viral infection is a disruptive process which shifts the normal function of the cell. This work shows the importance of one amino acid - asparagine - in cytomegalovirus infection and how disruption of asparagine metabolism can disrupt infection. Understanding which pathways are important to virus infection opens the door to new therapies.
