- Detect and evaluate biological properties of bacterial and animal viruses
- Classify and compare various influenza viruses
About this course:This course covers the biological properties of bacterial and animal viruses, replication, methods of detection, interactions with host cells, and multicellular hosts. Topics provide a general overview of the viral world and its diversity. The main focus will be on comparing the different viral taxa, especially their replication mechanisms; interactions with host cell/organisms; and their role as etiological agents of epidemic diseases, cancer, and heart conditions.
