An interdisciplinary approach to virus structure and assembly

During an interdisciplinary programme, Statistical Mechanics of Molecular and Cellular Biological Systems, at the Isaac Newton Institute Reidun Twarock, a mathematician from York, and Peter Stockley, an experimental biologist from Leeds, began to collaborate on a mathematical theory of the structure of viruses. For both, the Institute’s programme was a transformative experience since which, with their research teams, they have developed a distinctive integrative interdisciplinary approach to problems that neither discipline could have solved if working in isolation.
