Introduction to Virology

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Laurieann Casey Klockow (Faculty), Jun 06, 2010
Comment: While this site provides an accurate broad overview of virology, it is not a comprehensive intro to virology. However, it provides a fascinating historical prospective on the discovery of viruses, which I have used to introduce the concepts of vaccination in a general biology laboratory course. The online experiment to determine the titer of a viral preparation could be potentially useful- however, an educator would need to cover concepts such as: influenza, titer, haemagglutination, antigenic type, and how these fit into the broader topic of immunology to students before they use this virtual experiment.

Technical Remarks:

easy to use
