Fabio Pasin’s studies focus on the family Potyviridae, a major group of plant viruses, and have highlighted cleavage of viral polyproteins as a key immune evasion mechanism that coordinates virus replication and host-virus interaction. His recent research seeks to combine synthetic biology principles and data-driven approaches for viral system design and tool development. His work outputs were published by peer-reviewed journals in the fields of plant science, virology, applied microbiology and biotechnology. He is the inventor of international patent applications.
