Upon completion of the webinar, the participant should be able to: 
  • List attributes that are exclusive to viruses such as absence of metabolism, presence of either DNA or RNA, but not both, etc.;
  • Compare and contrast the infectious cycles of different types of viruses such as DNA and RNA viruses or enveloped and nonenveloped viruses; and
  • Describe ways by which viral infections are diagnosed, treated, and prevented.
