Virology is the study of viruses Â– submicroscopic, parasitic particles of genetic material contained in a protein coat Â– and virus-like agents. Viruses affecting bacteria are called as bacteriophages. Viruses have a great impact on immunology of human bodies, thus leading to the dreadful diseases such as AIDS and Viral hepatitis. Unlike the other microorganisms the genetic material in HIV is RNA. Due to its rapid replicating ability, it produces chronic infections and diseases in the host organisms. Plant viruses caused many lethal infections to crops which lead to the loss in crop production. Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature. Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method. Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
