Christiane Riedel

The main focus of my research is the analysis of virus architecture and dynamics of infection processes, employing cryo electron tomography and subtomogram averaging, fluorescence microscopy as well as standard molecular biology techniques. Projects include the structure of pestivirus particles, dynamics and structural changes during pestiviral host cell entry and the structure of the rabies virus ribonucleoprotein complex. If you are interested in these areas of research and would like to get in touch, just write an email.
