Engineering researchers are looking into the different ways that cells respond to viruses to better understand the mechanisms of cell growth, division, and death. Genetically identical cells respond differently to being infected with adenovirus (a virus that causes respiratory problems, among other illnesses), as indicated by the range of red colors in the image below (cell nuclei are indicated in blue and pink).
