available, since it is based on a well written published text and has many
advantages over its source material. The site is attractive, easy to navigate
and the author has kept the material current. There are plenty of full color
illustrations, and relevant links (including a search engine) are present for
each topic. There is a nice balance between discussions of molecular and
medical/epidemiological virology. The biggest disadvantage is that one either
has to read from the screen or print a large volume of material. In addition, most
of the material addresses animal viruses, although one can access material on
bacterial and plant viruses. I have used this site as the reference/background text
for my class since 1997 and the students prefer it to purchasing an expensive book.

It followed a course set up by the instructors. It appeared to be easy to
navigate for those taking the course. As for those generally interested in
virology, it was good and relatively straight forward. The associated links
were helpful and yet not too cumbersome (i.e. not too confusing or distracting).
The user interface was in general, easy to understand.

web site was excellent for those with a 56K modem.
The first time user should find this site easy to use.
