Each month, Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry hosts the Davis Science Café, featuring scientists who are studying some of today’s cutting edge topics. This month’s guest is Professor Priya Shah from the UC Davis Department of Chemical Engineering who studies how viruses control biological networks. Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at G. Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!
Abstract: Dengue and Zika virus are mosquito-borne viruses with growing impacts on public health. We use state of the art techniques called proteomics and epigenomics to understand how these viruses interact with their hosts, and how these interactions help the viruses replicate themselves inside human and mosquito cells.
