Autofluorescent African Swine Fever Virus tagged with ANCHOR

We are very proud to announce that in collaboration with Dr Ali Alejo Herberg from the Centro de Investigación en Sanidad Animal (CISA-INIA) and Dr. Germán Andrés from the Centro de Biología Molecular “Severo Ochoa” (CSIC-UAM), we are able for the first time to visualize African swine fever virus infection and replication directly in living cells. This ASFV contains the ANCHOR system and is therefore autofluorescent. Another example of the power of our technology to investigate rapidly the behavior of deadly viruses and find efficient countermeasures.
