Virology Down Under (VDU) was started by me in 1997 to provide information about the discovery, detection and characterization of human viruses. VDU looks at viruses and viral diseases and areas related to Virology, the study of viruses. Taxonomy, Haematology and in the future, Immunology, will help explain how such tiny things as viruses can have such an impact on us. The site is not just a blog, but there is, located at www.virologydownunder.blogspot.com.au.
For latest virus-related news and views, VDU has a blog found at:
This will allow a better record of the articles....for me as much as you...and it definitely speeds up the process of writing a lot. You will now be able to leave comments perhaps ideas, corrections and suggestions and you can get update alerts via sites like bloglovin'.
There will still be search capability through a Google search box, and I'll leave The Freezer (old blog entries) intact. I will endeavour to move all the old blog entries onto the Google-based Blogger platform though it may take a while.
The original core business of the VDU site - its pages providing more relaxed information on different viruses, DNA and PCR - will remain on the University of Queensland server, thanks to the Sir Albert Sakzewski Virus Research Centre. Only the blog component will be moving.
Many thanks for reading.
Older blog entries are kept in The Freezer.
