Annotation -
The lecture series shows viruses as a group of diverse intracellular parasites that are a common part
natural systems.

It mainly focuses on viruses found in invertebrates, plants, fungi, protists or bacteria,
which make up more than half of all known types of viruses.
After a general introduction, i.e. what viruses actually are, we will focus on viruses from different environments in more detail,
their history, replication strategy, pathogenesis, ecology, or
possibility of use in biomedical research.
We will look at viruses in the seas and oceans, plant viruses, fungal viruses, insect viruses, bacteriophages and not forgetting
human viruses that are actually part of us.
