Visiting Biotechnology PhD student, Renan Piraine, with the Bochman lab at IU authored two fermentation science papers
Renan Piraine, a visiting Biotechnology PhD student from the Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil, successfully defended his thesis in 2020 and authored two fermentation science papers (located here and here) with the Bochman lab at IU.
Door Pharmaceuticals, a company founded by MCB faculty member Adam Zlotnick, presented a paper at the International HBV Meeting
Door Pharmaceuticals, a company founded by MCB faculty member Adam Zlotnick, presented a paper at the International HBV Meeting (September 21, 2021). Members of the Door team showed that a small molecule that binds the HBV core protein could suppress HBV production. The Door team speculates that the molecule acts by inhibiting transcription of viral RNA.
A team from the Zlotnick lab, led by student Zhongchao Zhao, showed how a deliberately re-engineered capsid protein subunit could be used to control assembly and disassembly, even making “holey” capsids. In Zhao et al (2021) “Asymmetrizing an icosahedral virus capsid by hierarchical assembly of subunits with designed asymmetry.” Nat Commun. 12:589
