Micro 540: Graduate Virology
This course will provide an overview of mammalian virology using examples from selected families of pathogenic viruses of humans to illustrate basic concepts of molecular virology and principles of pathogenesis. Through critical reading of primary virology literature, the course will emphasize an understanding of experimental approaches to address unknowns. The overall structure is a ~45 min lecture on a specific topic and a ~25 min overview of a virus family on Thursday followed by an in-depth paper discussion on Tuesday. As part of the paper discussion, students in small groups will present prepared descriptions of key techniques from the assigned paper(s).
