Title: “The discovery and overview of Arenaviruses”
Speaker: HUL Vibol Engineer, MSc
The Arenaviridae family is divided into three genera: (1) Mamarenavirus which infects mammals, (2) Reptarenavirus and (3) Hartmanivirus, which infect reptiles. Further, genus Mamarenavirus is split into two serogroups, Old World and New World, based on geographic and genetic differences. Rodent hosts of arenaviruses are chronically infected but show no symptoms of illness. While humans are not part of the natural life cycle of the virus, they can be infected as incidental hosts via direct contact with excretions from infected rodents as well as indirectly from contaminated aerosols or material. This presentation will review the previous knowledge on this virus and future plan for my study.
