Microscopic Analysis of Viral Infection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Viruses engineered to express fluorescent proteins can be used with live-cell imaging techniques to monitor the progression of infection in real time. Here we describe a set of methods to track infection spreading from one cell population to another as well as to visualize transfer of virions between cells. This approach is extended to multiplexing with physiological readouts of cell death, which can be correlated with single-cell resolution to viral infection.
