Dear Colleagues,

This week we will review a 1981 paper by Erikson and Bancroft which measures the effect of viral coat protein on the secondary structure of RNA.  It is titled: "Melting of viral RNA by coat protein: Assembly strategies for elongated plant viruses".

Digital reprints are available at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/0042-6822(81)90542-0

See you tomorrow, (time and venue in subject line above)

Research Interest: I'm studying the process of viral RNA encapsidation. How does the size of the RNA affects its encapsidation? How does the RNA size affects the capsid size?
