The universities provide a unique software program where you can explore characteristics ofviruses with the use ofatomic force microscopy. Your challenge in the software program is to figure out what is making a puppy ill. You observe a phage invading a bacterium, learn about how viruses take over a cell and multiply, and examine different virus structures. The program also includes the history of virology research. This program is available free to educators and students for use in instructional contexts. For more information go to: http://ced.ncsu. edu/nanoscale/materials.htm
