As many of you know, I’ve been doing a series on the podcast titled Parasites 101. I thought I’d something similar with virology and viruses and I reached out to who I feel is clearly one of the best virologists and virology educators to help me out with this.
So here is the 1st episode of Virology 101 with Professor of Microbiology & Immunology in the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, Vincent Racaniello, PhD.
Dr. Racaniello answers question like–What is a virus? Are viruses living organisms? and other similar topics in this episode.
