10 February, 2009

OK, time’s up…and we have – a 50% winner!! Clayton, you got 1 and 4 spot-on; Dorian, you got 1 and 4 generically correct. Answers are:

  1. Maize streak virus (MSV), genus Mastrevirus, family Geminiviridae
  2. HIV-1C, genus Lentivirus, family Retroviridae
  3. AcMNPV, genus Nucleopolyhedrovirus, family Baculoviridae

See now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?

And the prize is…Clayton, you get to write a guest blog on the virus(es) of your choice!!  And we have ways and means of finding you, so I would do it if I were you…B-)

Thanks all (well, both) of you for entering; I will do this more often.
