Study Essential Viral Processes through a Dynamic Single-Molecule Approach

  • Viral replication strategies and life cycles vary depending on the virus types and can differ throughout all stages, including virus entry, replication, latency, and shedding (Figure 1). Understanding infection and replication processes of viruses is an essential step toward the development of therapeutic strategies to mitigate or treat viral diseases. This application note looks at current use of the Lumick’s Optical Tweezer systems in viral research
