Restrictions of Herpes Simplex Virus -1 Recombination
Oren Kobiler, Tel Aviv University

Herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) is a very common human pathogen that causes significant morbidity and mortality. For HSV-1, recombination is considered the major driver of genetic diversity and adaptation. Viral replication and recombination occur at specific sites within the infected nucleus known as replication compartments. We study HSV-1 recombination and explore cellular and viral conditions restricting it. Better understanding of these processes can help design methodologies to prevent the development of drug resistant strains.
