hi. i'm taking basic microbiology this semester, and i'm wondering if any of
you can clear up something for me. what do you mean by pathogenicity of a
virus? the dictionary states it as the ability of the virus to cause
disease. but how do i describe it? for example, if i were asked to describe
the pathogenicity of equine herpesvirus type 1, what am i supposed to say?
i'm very confused. thanks
