The Big Picture Book of Viruses:


The Big Picture Book of Viruses continues to prosper with many images being
added every week.  If you have a virus image you would like to share with
the public, or a Web site with viral images please contact us.

Survey Results:

As you might recall, in a recent ATV Update, we asked you to make
suggestions about what the site should be focusing on in the near future.
We made four potential suggestions:

1. An expanded and enhanced series of pages for specific virus families,
   allowing direct connections to images, research sites, disease
   information, etc.

2. A more complete series of on-line tutorials and courses, a virtual
   "On-Line Field's Virology".

3. A chat and discussion group capability, with a focus on virology.

4. General information about viruses for non-professionals

Of the hundreds of responses received, the breakdown turned out to be
something like this:

	1.  34%  Virus Families
	2.  35%  "On-Line Field's Virology"
	3.  13%  Chat or discussion groups
	4.  18%	 General Information

While a huge number of very constructive comments are not reflected in
these simple results, they have all had an impact on our thinking.  Our
interpretation of these results is that All the Virology on the WWW in on
the right track as perceived by our regular users.  Items # 1 and 2 are
closest to our previous mission, and this survey has convinced us to stay
on track.  Thank you very much for your participation!
