Understanding (harmful) virus-host interactions by linking virology and bioinformatics

Project description

Linking virology and bioinformatics to understand viruses and their interactions with hosts

Viruses represent one of the major potential threats for the continuously growing and ageing global population. However, despite viruses' role as human and animal pathogens, their beneficial, commensal or harmful functions have not yet been fully elucidated. The key feature of the EU-funded VIROINF project is its interdisciplinary nature, which brings together virologists and bioinformaticians to develop bioinformatics tools for application in the studies of relevant virological models. The goal is to enable a better understanding of viruses and their interaction with the hosts, giving virologists new tools to analyse emerging and known viruses. VIROINF will provide novel strategies to treat diseases and control the spread of viral infections. The research programme will include training of a new generation of scientists with advanced skills in virology and bioinformatics.
