Virology is the branch of science that deals with the study of viruses. The [course_title] highlights the common reactions that must be completed by all viruses for successful reproduction within a host cell and survival and spread within a host population. You’ll have a deeper understanding of different forms of viruses and other such organisms causing some skin problems and infections. Additionally, understand the molecular basis of alternative reproductive cycles, the interactions of viruses with host organisms, and how these lead to disease to animal and human.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word.
