Virulent Viruses

With Kishana Taylor, Ph.D.

If a human skin cell were the size of a standard piece of paper, a virus would be the size of a dime! How can a small piece of genetic material impact the lives of billions of people across the globe? With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging and new variants of the virus emerging, it is more important than ever to understand what viruses are. Join microbiologist Kishana Taylor, Ph.D. of Rutgers University, co-founder and president of the Black Microbiologists Association, to explore what viruses are and how they evolve and mutate.
