Patrick Moore returns to TWiV to discuss the discovery from his laboratory of circular RNAs in cells infected with herpesviruses.
Steve Goff returns to TWiV to discuss the work of his laboratory on how retroviral genomes are silenced in infected cells.
At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Vincent meets up with one of his virology heroes, Roland R. Rueckert, to talk about his research and his second career as a forest manager.
In the first episode for 2019, the TWiV team reviews the amazing virology stories of the past year.
The TWiV team summarizes the discovery of Sin Nombre virus, and presents evidence that neurotropic flaviviruses can cause intestinal dysmotility syndromes after systemic infection of mice.
The TWiV hosts discuss the distribution of prions in the eyes of patients with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, and the origins and evolution of RNA viruses.
Michelle Flenniken joins TWiV to talk about honeybees and the work of her laboratory on honeybee viruses
Raul Andino joins Vincent and Amy to talk about the finding that a cricket paralysis virus protein restricts RNA-based immunity in insects by regulating the activity and stability of the Argonaute protein.
At the University of Zürich, Vincent speaks with virologists Cornel Fraeful, Urs Greber, and Silke Stertz about their careers and their work on AAV2, adenovirus entry, and influenza virus.
The TWiVsters review isolation of a naturally occurring DNA virus from fruit flies, and the cell-type specific function of a small transmembrane protein encoded in an open reading frame upstream of the enterovirus polyprotein.
