Need help with virus for class presentation

  1. I have to do a class presentation on a virus for my microbiology class. We need to use visual aids. Does anyone have any ideas for a particularly interesting virus?

    How 'bout the West Nile Virus?

    Ebola virus.

    I did a project like that, it absolutely fascinated me.

    have y'all seen those little plush microbes? they're like stuffed animals, except each one is modelled after a different kind of bacteria or virus. they are adorable and come in all forms - h. pylori, rhinovirus, streptococcus, etc..

    That's hilarious (if a little twisted)! :chuckle

    My husband is a commercial pest specialist who just did a HUGE bed bug job for a hotel chain - I'll have to get him one of those stuffed ones (he's paranoid about staying in hotels now)!

    My kids have those microbes - they were SO excited, and they come with a little pamphlet about each of them. It is hilarious hearing my 7 year old talk about her Tummy Ache and Common Cold!
