Viruses From Structure to Biology

URL:www.medicine.wustl.edu/~virology
  • Interesting Reading
  • Mainly for history buffs
There is no aspect of biology that has captured the public interest as much as viruses have. From the avian flu to HIV to SARS, viruses are in the news almost every day, so a site dedicated to historical and other perspectives of viruses is timely and relevant. Focused mostly on history, Viruses from Structure to Biology reminds us that scientific progress continues despite war, political upheavals, and other man-dominated events. The timeline on the site, which parallels advances in discovery about viruses with world events, is informative and interesting. The interface is simple—three main sections with hyperlinked/hierarchical organization. An informative site on an important topic.
