BIOL 54400 Principles of Virology (Graduate)
This is an intensive course focused on the molecular biology of viruses. Students will learn about the genetic and molecular structure of viruses, their replication and modes of infection. Viral RNA, DNA and protein synthesis will be discussed in detail. Intracellular trafficking, assembly and exit of viral particles will be studied. HIV pathogenesis and oncogenesis by viruses will get special emphasis along with vaccines and antiviral drugs. Molecular biological insights gained by study of viruses will be discussed in detail.
