How do capsids of large viruses assemble from individual protein subunits? Led by Professor Juha Huiskonen and published in Nature Communications, our cryo-EM study on a dsRNA virus revealed how a mechanism called domain-swapping is utilised in the assembly of the outer capsid shell. Domain-swapping may also provide an explanation on how closed protein shells arise in evolution.View all Research Highlights
