Every year, influenza outbreaks claim hundreds of thousands of human lives. Though vaccination against flu is fairly efficient, the disease is difficult to exterminate because of the high evolutionary rate of the flu virus. Every year, new flu strains spread over the planet that differ slightly from those that were common a year before, which helps the virus to escape the immune response, and possibly compromises the efficiency of anti-viral drugs. Furthermore, from time to time, a...

A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates inside the living cells of organisms. It is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the living cells of organisms. Most are too small to be seen by anything but a microscope and they infect all organisms from animals to plants to bacteria. The first one discovered was the tobacco virus in 1898. Since then around 5,000 viruses have been described in detail although there are millions of different types. They are found in...

Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) is a virus in the family Rhabdoviridae. Rabies is in the same family. VSV infects insects and animals and is important to farmers in certain regions of the world where it can infect cattle. It is a common laboratory virus used for studying the Rhabdoviridae family and viral evolution. It is the prototypic member of the vesiculovirus genera of the Rhabdovirus family. The genome is a single molecule of negative-sense RNA that encodes five major proteins.

Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is a positive-sense single stranded RNA virus that infects plants, namely tobacco and other members of the family Solanaceae. It causes characteristic patterns on the leaves. In 1930 it was determined that an infectious agent was determined to be a virus. Adolf Mayer first described the disease in 1883. The disease can be transferred between plants similar to bacterial infections. Dimitri Ivanovski was the first to show that infected sap remained infectious even...
