SCURCA Fellow Justine Levesque is making great progress working with Dr. Janine LeBlanc-Straceski in the Department of Biology this summer on a project to purify viral proteins. The proteins are involved in a kind of immunity - like CRISPR and restriction enzymes - to keep viruses out of bacteria. The newly discovered virus was named Hopey by the Merrimack students that found it right on campus.
