 Hello Dr. Catherine,

As you know that translating the Latin/Greek/..etc names of microorganisms into English would a lot more easier to memorize them. Is there any book or something that is for translating the latin, greek roots. Because textbooks don't  mention the meaning most of the times.


Thank you very much!

Hello,

I am a high school senior about to send off my applications for college. I am stuck on one thing – my intended major. Biology and chemistry have been my favorite courses throughout high school, and I would like to get a college degree that will enable me to perform research with viruses. My lifetime goal is to find a cure for a disease. From your experience, what undergraduate major should I shoot for? Biochemistry? Microbiology? Molecular Biology? Immunology? Chemical Biology? Organic Chemistry? Pharmaceutical Science? Any guidance is appreciated.
