Virology course at halfway point

12 March 2012

virology courseIt 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.

All my virology lectures are available as videocasts (slides and audio) either at the course website, or at the new iTunes University.
