Group leader:Qin Fang

   Viruses with dsRNA genomes in the Reoviridae family infect a wide range of hosts, including plants, insects, fishes, mammalians and humans. The major purpose of this group is to investigate the molecular biology characteristics and structural basis of the viruses isolated from aquatic animals, primarily Grass Carp Reovurs(GCRV). The current research interests include the fundamental aspects of the transcription mechanisms involved within icosahedral particles, virus-cell interaction, virus particle assembly, and viral pathogenesis by using GCRV as model.
