Image-based Quantification of Direct Cell-to-cell Transmission of Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus
Authors:  Fernando Merwaiss and Diego E. Alvarez, date: 08/05/2019, view: 479, Q&A: 0
Different viruses rely on direct cell-to-cell transmission to propagate infection within the infected host. Measuring this mode of transmission in cultured cells is often complicated by the contribution of cell free viruses to spread, and the ...
