Virology is a branch of science that deals with the detailed study of viruses.Virology includes structure, classification and evolution, how they infect and virus reproduction,the techniques to isolate and culture them, research and therapy. and diseases caused by viruses.
Virology focuses on the following aspects of viruses: their structure, classification and evolution, their ways to infect and exploit host cells for reproduction, their interaction with host organism physiology and immunity, the diseases they cause, the techniques to isolate and culture them, and their use in research and therapy. Virology is considered to be a sub field of microbiology or of medicine.Viruses can be classified according to the host cell they infect: animal viruses, plant viruses, fungal viruses, and bacteriophages. According to the type of nucleic acid they use as genetic material and the viral replication method they employ to coax host cells into producing more viruses
