 I'm involved in producing some computer-based (Mac/Hypercard) teaching
 software at the moment - Hypertext-style pictures and descriptions
 of plant viruses and their symptoms - Simulation of an experiment to
 identify an unknown plant virus (student chooses different techniques ie
 host range studies, EM, vector transmission etc and then has to interpret
 the results.)

 If you can hang on a bit longer I'll send you a sneak preview of the
 sequence of Paspalum striate mosaic geminivirus! We just have a few
 peculiar features to resolve/confirm.
