Our group is interested in the study of calicivirus host-cell interactions, particularly in the role of cellular proteins in viral replication. Since there is not a convenient cell culture to propagate human caliciviruses (HuCVs), we are using two surrogate models: feline calicivirus (FCV) and murine norovirus (MNV) to study calicivirus biology. On the other hand, we are also studding the molecular epidemiology of HuCVs, through its detection in feces, with the propose of knowing the incidence of this viruses in our population.
