Immunology of Herpes Simplex Virus Infections
A broad spectrum of human disease is observed in infection with herpes simple virus. The Han laboratory seeks to understand how the virus limits the host immune response and to define host immune response that can best protect against severe HSV disease. MSI resources are used in the analysis of DNA and protein sequences. The uses include sequence editing, primer design, and database searching.
