In this video, UC Berkeley Professor and IGI Investigator Britt Glaunsinger, PhD, explains the evolution, genetics, and virulence of coronaviruses. The rapid spread of COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of studying viral genetic landscapes and molecular structures.
Dr. Glaunsinger breaks down the latest scientific understanding of these viruses, from their gene expression profiles to their mechanisms of infection. Through structural, genetic, and epidemiological studies, scientists have gained fascinating insights into the expanding world of coronaviruses. Despite this breadth of knowledge, many exciting and pressing questions remain unanswered.
This video is intended for a scientific audience with an understanding of genetics and molecular biology. Dr. Glaunsinger gave a more lay-friendly talk on viruses in general for iBiology, available here.
