BIO 393 - The Biology and Epidemiology of COVID-19

This libguide was created for students in the Fall 2020 class BIO 393 - The Biology and Epidemiology of COVID-19. The class is being co-taught by Dr. Roberta Pollock and Dr. Kimberly Shriner. The students in the class will continue to update the Instruction and Research Specialist for the Sciences (Dr. Lilly E Linden) to keep this resource current and updated.


Caption: This illustration, created at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses. Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
