Virus Diversity Dependent on Host: Marilyn Roossinck Discusses Her Research

Professor and virologist Marilyn Roossinck appeared on the Finding Genius Podcast to talk about her research and how her work on persistent plant viruses has changed how she conceives of the larger virus community.

The mysterious disappearance of the first SARS virus, and why we need a vaccine for the current one but didn’t for the other

Some people question why the current coronavirus has brought the world to standstill while a previous deadly coronavirus, SARS, did not.

What are viruses anyway, and why do they make us so sick? 5 questions answered

You may sometimes have felt like you "have come down with a virus," meaning that you became sick from being exposed to something that could have been a virus. In fact, you have a virus - actually, many - all the time. Some viruses cause the common cold, and some are crucial to human survival. New viruses can also emerge, and they typically create illness in humans when they have very recently jumped from another species to humans. As world health leaders try to determine how to respond to the new coronavirus, virus expert Marilyn J. Roossinck answers a few questions.

Setting the Record Straight: Panic and Pandemics

First reported in Wuhan, China, on December 31, the respiratory illness prompted by coronavirus (dubbed COVID-19) has since spread to 28 countries worldwide, infecting more than 60,000 individuals. Unfortunately, as cases across the globe increase, so too does the dangerous misinformation surrounding them. The below titles, about outbreaks, viruses, and vaccines, attempt to set the record straight.

A New Discovery Upends What We Know About Viruses

A plant virus distributes its genes into eight separate segments that can all reproduce, even if they infect different cells.

Grant Supports Research to Combat White-Nose Syndrome in Bats

Penn State research aimed at combating white-nose syndrome in bats has received funding from the Bats for the Future Fund, a public-private partnership between the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service, Southern Company, and the Avangrid Foundation.
