Alex Evilevitch Department of Pathobiology and Physics University of Illinois   Title:"Herpesvirus infectivity facilitated by internal DNA pressure and capsid stability" Abstract: Herpesviruses are a leading cause of human viral disease, second only to influenza and cold viruses. Herpesviruses consist of a double-stranded (ds) DNA genome contained within a protein shell, termed the capsid, that is surrounded by an unstructured protein layer (the tegument) and a lipid-envelope. During viral replication, an ATP-dependent motor packages the genome into a preformed capsid…
