BIO 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Current Topics in Virology

2 credits (Spring)
Viruses are parasitic pieces of nucleic acid (DNA or RNA), which have evolved to successfully infect every organism known to mankind. Yet, surprisingly little is known about the details of the modes of transmission or infection cycles. The purpose of this course is to explore the role of viruses as infectious agents and to understand the impact of viral pathogenesis on the biological world through a survey of the primary literature, review articles, and film.

Prerequisite: BIO 251  or BCM 262 .
Note: Dates: January 21 to April 10. Half semester deadlines apply.
Instructor: Kuzmanovic
