Host: Frank Jiggins

The field of insect immunity has been largely dominated by studies on antimicrobial immunity, while antiviral immunity has received relatively little attention. Based on a combination of basic and applied science as well as bioinformatic approaches, we investigate the molecular and cellular aspects underlying the immune dynamics of the antiviral response. I will comment on the mechanism of antiviral RNAi in insects and its main attributes, such as memory, specificity, and effect on the virus.
