Our research merges cutting-edge chromatin technology with virology to reveal fundamental chromatin functions and provide new insight into virus infection. We use two different nuclear replicating viruses, adenovirus and herpesvirus, as the test cases for virus infection to pinpoint chromatin vulnerabilities exploited by multiple pathogens and deepen our understanding of viral hijacking.
