A balanced approach to deliver a broad introduction to the field of molecular virology is my aim. This will include some basic molecular biology along with an emphasis in studying the molecular aspects of viruses. Bacteria phage, plant viruses, and insect viruses will be discussed in addition to animal and human pathogens. Based on the surveys, the lectures and discussion topics will be tailored to fit the class as much as possible. [Some restrictions do apply. J]

Discussion sections will include a variety of activities, including hands-on exercises with modeling, computers, focused discussion topics, short presentations, and reviews. There will also be demonstrations and even a wet-lab exercise.

This web site is intended to support your efforts in this course, as well as allow you to expand beyond it.

Prerequisites: Completion of the lower-division core in Biology or equivalent. Strongly recommended: at least one semester of Organic Chemistry. Open to non-majors with consent of instructor.
