BIO 19S: Science of Covid-19

This course is designed to help students apply knowledge from an introductory high school biology course to problems related to Covid-19. We will examine how the virus SARS-CoV-2 attacks the human body, how the immune system responds, how testing works, and how this information can be used to design drugs and vaccines to halt the spread of the virus. There has been an explosion of research papers and many claims in the media about the virus. We will evaluate the claims critically and explore the underlying science by reading a few selected papers.
