Viruses

  • David S. Goodsell

Abstract

If you have ever had a cold, or chicken pox, or the mumps, or the flu, or measles, or any of dozens of other diseases, then you have been attacked by a virus. Viruses are an ever-present danger in our biological environment, and in spite of many powerful methods that protect us, sometimes they get the upper hand and pose a threat to life.
