Researchers have been able to capture images of measles viruses as they emerge from infected cells, using state of the art cryo-electron tomography techniques. The new images will help with a greater understanding of measles and related viruses, and could give hints on antiviral drug strategies likely to work across multiple viruses of this type. The results were published Monday, April 30 in Nature Communications. The team was led Elizabeth Wright and Zunlong Ke. Wright is an associate professor of pediatrics at Emory University with an adjunct appointment in the Georgia Tech School of Biological Sciences. Ke was Georgia Tech PhD student of Wright's.
