What’s a virus?

Stanford published this video item, entitled “What’s a virus?” – below is their description.

What are viruses? And how do these tiny infectious particles, which straddle the line between life and non-life, multiply and spread to become global pandemics? This animation, an accompaniment to the article, What’s a virus, anyway? published in the Stanford School of Medicine SCOPE blog, delves into these questions and more. The animation was created in conjunction with Bruce Goldman, the author of the original article, and Jan Carrette, an Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology.
