Biochemical, biophysical, and structural approaches to study viral replication and assembly using X-Ray crystallography and enzyme kinetics. The understanding of the biochemical structure and function of viral proteins can provide foundational knowledge about how to develop antiviral therapies.The energy intensive process of viral replication can also serve as a model to understand how biological systems use biomolecules to produce massive amounts of energy.
