Online exhibit: A World of Viruses

February 21st, 2021

Virus behavior can have both positive and negative repercussions in the world, and in our bodies. At this present time the world is coping with a pandemic caused by the infiltration of the airborne virus, COVID-19. In fact, viruses are ever present in our world, occupying nearly all organisms, and found in virtually every type of habitat. They are also ancient, predating some of the earliest forms of life.

Through this online exhibit, “A World of Viruses,” we will learn about how viruses, the smallest of all microbes, can take control of the cellular machinery of another living thing. We will explore key Harvard-based research, informative videos, and helpful animations about viruses to get a better understanding of how they behave in our world.
