... read the Hot Zone, and before that a "great" book on
the black death. Now I have a strong interest in virology, which
is I confess reinforced by a rather morbid facination with Ebola, thanx
to Richard Preston.

with little specific knowledge of biology/virology but I really want
to learn more about these threatening organisms.
