Description

This course is an in-depth examination of the biology of viruses. Discussions of replication strategies used by specific viruses serve as the basis for understanding virus-host interactions and pathogenicity by particular viruses. Other topics include virus particle structure, vector relations, and viral genetics. Critical reading of the primary virological literature is an important element of the course. The credit-bearing laboratory BIOL 373L must be taken concurrently with BIOL 373. This laboratory introduces students to basic methodology involved in virology research while conducting novel experiments to investigate virus-cell interactions. Prerequisite: Completion of any one BIOL 201–206 course.
