Genomic technologies are, by their very nature, designed for hypothesis generation. In some cases, the hypotheses that are generated require that genome scientists confirm findings about specific genes or proteins. But one major advantage of high-throughput technology is that global genetic, genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic behaviors can be observed.(More)
Apoptosis and autophagy do not merely mediate cell death, but have the additional function of fighting against microbial invaders. If initiated at the proper time, apopto-sis can limit viral infection by killing virus-infected cells. Autophagy (the " recycling factory " of the cell) can dismantle the pathogen. In response to these pressures, many viruses(More)
