MB&B 304
Spring 2010 not offered

This half-semester course will focus on the molecular biology of viruses. We will specifically examine the mechanisms by which viruses evade host defenses and subvert control of cellular machinery for their own replication. Viruses of particular impact to human health, such as DNA tumor viruses and HIV, will be used as primary examples. The use of viruses in gene therapy and the prospects for molecular approaches to antiviral therapies and vaccines will also be discussed.
