It is spring break for students at Columbia University, which means that my annual virology course is one lecture past the halfway point. The first eleven lectures addressed basic aspects of viral replication in cell culture, including virus entry into cells, genome replication, and assembly. From this point onwards we will be discussing viral infection of a host, including pathogenesis, immunity, immunization, antivirals, and evolution.
