Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Sep 16, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Marcos Ortega, Biology, will present “Viral Replication, X-Ray Crystallography, and Molecular Motors: A Biophysicist’s Soup De Jour.”  Viral replication is a complex and dynamic process which involves the interactions of very many "moving parts," including an assembly of viral proteins referred to as a molecular motor which is involved in viral assembly. Ortega’s research seeks to understand the interactions of these biomolecules so as to illuminate viral replication at the detailed molecular level.  The findings will help in developing viral therapies as well as elucidating a general mechanisms used by molecular motors in other processes such as DNA replication and DNA repair.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
