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. The site began a blog in April 2013, located at

www.virologydownunder.blogspot.com.au. As of 22nd March 2015,

I’ve decided to no longer update the website. I will move its content

to blog pages instead.
