Track 1: Viral Infections
Viruses, the obligate intracellular infectious agents when invade a living cell, multiply, and infect the susceptible host cell with its replicated genome causing numerous changes in the cell, results in a viral infection. Virus can be synonymous to a hijacker. It hijacks your system and protects itself inside your cell- thereby being protected the very means of your body. One of the essential specifications to be remembered about a viral infection is that antibiotics do not work against viruses. They are only effective against bacterial infections. There are many infections, that are commonly caused by viruses and spread through air- The viruses that spread through air are quite dangerous as it infects numerous people at once and quite easily.
Track 2: Viral Genetics
The study of various genetic mechanisms by which viruses take over the cell machinery of the host cell. It includes genome structure, replication and mutations. Viruses constantly keep undergoing subtle genetic changes mainly through recombination and mutations. Re-combinations primarily result in creation of a novel virus, which is due to the exchange of genetic exchange between two co-infecting different viruses. These mutations are caused by the physical mutagens viz., UV light, X-rays, gamma rays or by the resonance of the nucleic acids, or most importantly by some error in the enzymes that work on the nucleic acids. While recombination is the creation of any novel virus due to exchange of the genetic information between 2 viruses of same type.
Track 3: Anti-Viral Agents & Vaccines
Antiviral agents are drugs in that prohibit the spread of virus by preventing the replication of the genome, obstructing the entry of viruses into the host cells, or by inhibiting viral protein synthesis and/ or viral assembly. Antiviral drugs, unlike antibiotics, do not destroy their target; rather they only inhibit their development. Antivirals are of 2 types- Narrow spectrum (treating for specific viral infections) and broad spectrum (treating wide range of similar viral infections). These antivirals, for now are available to treat only few viral infections. Most clinical useful antiviral agents exert their action on viral replication, either at stage of nucleic synthesis or at stage of slow protein synthesis and processing. Antiviral drugs are designed in such a way that these drugs identify viral proteins, or parts of proteins, that can be disabled.
Track 4:Veterinary Virology
Assessment of viruses that undergo their first cycle of replication in animals is veterinary virology. Zoonotic viral infections are transmissible from animals to humans, thereby infecting both- often affecting the nervous system in humans. Veterinary Virology’s most essential field of study is the veterinary epidemiology, which is used to describe the frequency of the infection caused, its occurrence, symptoms, severity of symptoms, and the management and preventive measures that hit and those that failed.
Track 5: Clinical & Diagnostic Virology
Diagnosis of any probable viral infection with the help of various tests such as, specific, assorted or conventional tests to identify the causative virus. Multiple methods are in use for laboratory diagnosis in probing the viral infections, including serology, viral culture, antigen detection, and nucleic acid detection. Due to various developments in the technology, we see high-end and quite impressive immunologic and molecular diagnostic tests are developed to provide more accurate results and to detect the viruses- type, number and to identify their pathogenicity as well. This field provides specific recommendations for diagnostic approach to clinically important viral infections.
Track 6:Plant & Agriculture Virology
Plant viruses were the cornerstone that felicitated the start of virology. The “infectious agent” isolated from tobacco plant was later discovered to be virus. Hence, the importance of plant viruses, and the sub-field of plant virology as a whole cannot be undermined. Viruses, almost most often causes infections and damage, but there are few plant viruses that have economic importance as well.
Track 7: Viral Immunology
Viruses exhibit strong immunological responses with both cellular and humoral immunity. Cell mediated helps in governing with the help of T, B cells and Natural Killer Cells- with T cells in conjecture with MHC and humoral immunity responses basically govern by neutralizing the antigens. With the evolution of viruses and the constant mutations that they go on with, it becomes essential to understand the type of interactions it undergoes with specific antibodies. signalling directs cellular activities and coordinates cell activities. A Neutralizing antibody is also an antibody which safeguards a cell from an antigen or infectious body by inhibiting or neutralizing any effect it is biologically. Cell-mediated immunity is an immune response that does not involve antibodies, but although it involves activation of phagocytes, antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, and the release of various cytokines in response to an antigen.
Track 8: Nano Biotechnology and Viro-Therapy
Viruses have always been used in Nano biotechnology as a vector, which is used to introduce genes/ plasmid into the host cells in recombination and a modified virus is typically a carrier in gene therapy that are capable of delivering therapeutic genes to the target cells. Presently, the viral-nano biotechnology is developing at such a fast pace that these viruses are now considered a organic nanoparticle, primarily because their surface tools are capable of crossing the barriers of the host cells. These impressive and massive approaches life-sciences in association with chemistry, physics and engineering have become the foundation of modern bio-physical medicine and opening a wide spectrum of approaches in all these pure and applied fields.
Track 9: Viral Epidemiology
The trends of occurrence, outspread of viruses in human and non-human populations and the outbreak and their correlation with the host and environmental factors are scrutinized to determine the subtleties of these infections to formulate the obligatory intervention strategies to prevent an epidemic. Viral Major areas of epidemiological study include disease etiology, outbreak investigation transmission, disease surveillance, screening, forensic epidemiology, bio-monitoring, and comparisons of the treatment methods in clinical trials.
Track 10: Neuro-Viral Infections
Inter-disciplinary field of Neurology, Immunology, Virology, and Molecular biology dealing with the viral infections affecting the nervous system of the host, their mechanism and the host response and the changes it undergoes. Numerous viruses have been known to produce infections in the nervous system, taking over the systematics and producing several imminent changes and infections. The field of neurovirology includes neuro-imaging, Lumbar puncture and CSF analysis and brain biopsy.
Track 11: Host Cell Response to Viral Infections
Virus, after infecting a host cell, is inside a protective layer of the cell, hidden from various immune system receptors. The host cell instead starts showing their “symptoms” to other cells using Major Histocompatibility complex proteins. But, the viruses, have evolved ways to spread and replicate themselves, evading detection by T-cells as some viral mechanisms inhibit the MHC expression, which then cannot be detected by T-cells. To combat such “irregular” cells, there are Natural Killer cells, NK Cells which detect, isolate and then kill such cells that display less than required MHC proteins on their cell surface. Similarly, host cells responds via interferons, antibodies and antibody mediated phagocytosis.
Track 12: Preventing Future Outbreaks
The ultimate goal is to prevent the outbreak rather than finding a cure later. Once there is an outbreak, the focus should be on containing the virus in that particular area, rather than letting it spread; this is called containment. Outbreaks are of 2 types- Epidemic and Pandemic. There have been numerous calls by many health organizations who call for strategies and implementation of steps to prevent any global outbreak of the viral infections.
Track 13: Ebola Outbreaks
Ebola, earlier referred to as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, is a viral infection, transmitted to humans from wild animals and spreads through human-to-human transmission. Ebola has had 2 outbreaks- one in 1976 and the most recent outbreak in 2014. Incidentally, both the outbreaks were in Africa. In humans, it is spread via, direct contact with the secretions, blood, and/or bodily fluids of infected groups, or by using the contaminated things of the infected. Ebola viruses were initially found in numerous African countries, after it was discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, the natural reservoir host of Ebola virus still remains unknown.
