Enterovirus Competition Assay to Assess Replication Fitness
Authors:  Valeria Lulla and Andrew E. Firth, date: 05/20/2019, view: 3757, Q&A: 0
In virology the difference between the fitness of two viruses can be determined by using various methods, such as virus titer, growth curve analysis, measurement of virus infectivity, analysis of produced RNA copies and viral protein production. ...
