Organization's (WHO) Influenza site. Good information about this viral
infection. Weekly updates of Influenza activity around the world and some great
links to other Influenza sites.
Hepadnavirus Testing, Inc. - The site
describes the services provided by Hepadnavirus Testing, Inc., which uses HBV
and DHBV to evaluate disinfectants, inactivation processes, and antiviral drugs
for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
Killers--Deadly Viruses - Basics about viruses, our bodies' immune systems,
information about specific viruses, and how these 'hidden killers' could
potentially be used as bio-weapons. There are also weekly/bi-weekly feature
articles on various facets that involve viruses.
HIV Sequence Database -

the Los Alamos Natl. Lab.
Images - Computer visualizations of viruses including bacteriaphages and
plant, animal, and human viruses (U. Wisconsin).
Institute for Molecular
Virology - Features news articles about current virus issues, a new featured
virus every month, virology tutorials, and computer visualizations of viruses
among other things
Multiplex EU-project -
Development, standardisation and harmonisation of novel multiplex nucleic acid
tests for the detection of economically important viruses of farm animals.
A New Germ
Theory - The dictates of evolution virtually demand that the causes of some
of humanity's chronic and most baffling "noninfectious" illnesses will turn out
to be pathogens -- that is the radical view of a prominent evolutionary
Poxvirus Bioinformatics Resource - The
Poxvirus Bioinformatics Resource Center has been established to provide
resources to the scientific community for basic research and to facilitate the
development of novel antiviral therapies and vaccines against human
orthopoxvirus infections as well as approaches for environmental detection of
virions and the rapid diagnosis of disease.
Seminars in Virology
- This is a review journal, dedicated to keeping scientists informed of
developments in the field of virology on a topic by topic basis.
Virology - This journal
publishes the results of basic research in all branches of virology, including
the viruses of vertebrates and invertebrates, plants, bacteria, and
Virology Down Under - An Australian
based portal and educational site providing links and info on human viruses and
related areas of science.
Online - A very comprehensive index of viruses. Includes very detailed
descriptions on many viruses. It is also called The International Viral Database
as approved by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.
International - A directory of resources, literature, societies and events
concerning viruses provided by Elsevier Science.
Ultrastructure - This page is designed primarily as an introductory manual
for students of virology,but anyone who is interested is invited to take a brief
"peep" at some of the inhabitants of the microbial Lilliput Land.
Influenza - Viruses are "cheaters" in the evolution game because they use
lots of genetic "tricks" like recombinant genetics. Here you'll learn about them
with a focus on the "chicken flu".
Virusys Corporation - Specialists in
the design and manufacture of virus related antibodies and antigens. A full
range of laboratory services is available that includes infectious dose
determination, viral protein purification and custom antibody production.

aid for physicians and scientists studying for their board, membership or
fellowship exams in medical microbiology/virology
ZeptoMetrix - Providing products
and reagents for the research community. Product information on monoclonal
antibodies, cytokines, DNA and ELISA probes, antigens and other reagents.
Journal of General Virology - presents research on aspects of animal, plant, insect, bacterial, and fungal viruses along with the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.
Journal of Virology - covers research concerning viruses, using cross disciplinary approaches of biochemistry, biophysics, cell and molecular biology, genetics, immunology, morphology, physiology, pathogenesis, and more.
