Kristen Ogden lab

The Ogden lab is generally interested in diversity acquisition mechanisms in viruses of the Reoviridae family. My project focuses on how RNA dynamics contribute to genome segment reassortment during coinfection and superinfection.  We hope to better understand replication and assembly strategies in these viruses and to elucidate genetic and spatiotemporal barriers to reassortment.
