This week in virology, parasitism, and microbiology

17 March 2013

In the past five days we released three science shows on the TWi* network.

On This Week in Microbiology (TWiM) episode #52, Vincent and Michael meet up with Ellen Jo Baron to talk about working in a clinical microbiology laboratory.

On This Week in Parasitism (TWiP) episode #52, Vincent and Dickson review the life cycle and pathogenesis of the giant kidney worm, Dioctophyme renale.

On This Week in Virology (TWiV) episode #224, Vincent, Alan, Kathy, and Dickson discuss identification of a cell receptor for the coronavirus-EMC, and the role of interferon-epsilon in protecting the female reproductive tract.

Thanks for listening.
