This is the second webinar in our two-part series on microbiology. Watch to learn about major virus families, viral structures, and the life cycles of commonly tested diseases, like HIV and hepatitis B. This webinar will also teach you how to calculate phage titers with respect to bacteriophages and read viral genome
At a glance
Relate viruses, bacteria, and eukaryotes
Interpret viral experimental results
Calculate phage titers and viral infectivity
Read and determine viral genome
The major viral components
Virus families and replication methods
The interaction of bacteria and viruses through bacteriophage infection
Common viral diseases and their life cycles
On the MCAT
Viruses are non-living infectious entities and the MCAT likes to test viral diseases because there are many of them
HIV and hepatitis A-E are commonly tested, in addition to adenovirus and, most recently, coronaviruses
While prions are not technically viruses, they fall under the virus category for the MCAT
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
