« A Matter of Timing: Yellow Fever and the Mosquito Hypothesis | Main | Talmudic Question #56 »



Since Elio includes viruses in the microbiology coalition, I have the following comment:
Two years ago when I was a guest at the New England regional ASM meeting, i was given an "anti-nucleus" button to wear, which I wore while talking about my favorite subject, retroviruses. This inspires a Talmudic-like query - is the virus the microbe, or is the infected cell the microbe? Because I think my favorite microbe is essentially a eukaryotic cell.
