Study 1: Scientists characterize a double subgenomic chikungunya virus infectious clone to express heterologous genes in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in a recent issue of Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
"Three full-length infectious cDNA clones based on the alphavirus chikungunya (CHIKV) were developed and characterized in vitro and in vivo. The full-length clone retained the viral phenotypes of CHIKV in both cell culture and in mosquitoes and should be a valuable tool for the study of virus interactions in an epidemiologically...
