Dr. Tom Solomon is Director of the Institute for Infection and Global Health at the University of Liverpool. In this video he speaks with Vincent Racaniello about the 2014 outbreak of Zaire ebolavirus in West Africa. Dr. Solomon discusses why the epidemic has spread, how it might be curtailed, t...

The enzymes that make copies of the DNA or RNA genomes of viruses – nucleic acid polymerases – can be placed into two broad categories depending on whether or not they require a primer, a short piece of DNA or RNA, to get going. The structure of the primer-independent RNA polymerase of hepatitis... Read More
Here I remember a person who a great deal of influence on my views about microbiology in the classroom, and the laboratory: the late Abigail Salyers. RIP, Abigail. Read More
Ribose Nucleic Acid, also named RNA, is the intermediary of DNA and protein. Compared with DNA, RNA has less molecular-weight but more classification.With the development of all kinds of research, scientists found that RNA plays an important role in the evolution of life. I hope this article can... Read More

Vincent Racaniello of the This Week in Virology podcast interviews Karla Kirkegaard, PhD, about her career and professional experience in the field of virology.
This video is one of 26 video interviews with eminent virologists that are part of the supplemental material for the Princip... Read More
The hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) glycoproteins of the influenza virus particle serve distinct functions during infection. The HA binds sialic acid-containing cellular receptors and mediates fusion of the viral and cell membranes, while the NA removes sialic acids from glycoproteins.... Read More
The Amazon river is the largest river in the world. It drains the entire Amazon rainforest, sending leftover nutrients, detritus, and minerals from the South American jungle out into the tropical Atlantic ocean. This runoff forms a freshwater plume, hundreds of miles across, that profoundly affe... Read More
In this episode of Virus Watch, I show how to do my favorite assay in all of virology - the plaque assay.
Something you need know about Viral Antigens
What are Viral Antigens? We can hear this word every time when the heavy flu spreads across the world such as SARS, Ebola and Bird Flu. Actually, a Viral Antigen can be regarded as a toxin and it is some substance which is produced by a virus. This k... Read More
Recently, the American Academy of Microbiology released a new report, Viruses Throughout Life & Time: Friends, Foes, Change Agents that delves into the origin of viruses, the overlooked biological and microbial ecological role of viruses, and how these live forms have contributed to evolution. T... Read More
The fact of using antibiotics in aquaculture has immersed a multiresistance in pathogenic bacteria. This is why a spare solution had to be found which is the probiotics. So for that, I isolated lactic bacteria (lactobacilles) from the intestine of a pelagic fish (sardina pilchardus) and did a lo... Read More
Science writer Maryn McKenna interviews John Sever, MD, PhD, former chief of infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health and current vice-chairman of Rotary’s International PolioPlus Committee, about the early days of the polio struggle and the introduction of the polio vaccine.

An otherwise balanced review of selected aspects of Ebolavirus transmission falls apart when the authors hypothesize that ‘Ebola viruses have the potential to be respiratory pathogens with primary respiratory spread.’
The idea that Ebolavirus might become transmitted by the respiratory route ... Read More
