Infectious diseases are caused by microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites and can spread between individuals. Microorganisms that cause disease are collectively called pathogens. Infectious diseases can be spread from one person to another, for example through contact with bodily fluids, by aerosols (through coughing and sneezing), or via a vector, for example a mosquito.  

Infections that are prepared to do specifically or in a roundabout way actuating tumor arrangement. Coordinate tumor development may come about because of vaccination of living cells with tumorigenic infections. Tumor development may come because of the impact of the infection on typical cells that are changed into tumor cells.Viruses play a role in the development of cancer due to the genetic changes. The viruses and cancer are known as tumour viruses or oncogenic viruses. The frequency of human cancer can be reduced vaccinating against the viruses or therapeutically by testing the infections.

Deadly viruses caused due to the viruses which are tiny germs that invade into the living organisms and normal cells and by using those cells multiply and produce viruses like themselves. They can cause damage; make changes in the cell can make us sick or can kill us. Viruses can attack different cells in or body like liver, Respiratory system, or blood. Few examples of some deadly viral diseases are Ebola, H5N1bird Flue, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, and Spanish Flue, Rabies, HIV, West Nile Virus etc. There are antiviral medicines to treat viral infection. Vaccines can prevent us from viral infection.

Neuro Virology mainly focuses on the viruses which infects the nervous system and to trace neuroanatomical pathway by using viruses for gene therapy and to eliminate the harmful populations of neural cells. Viruses infects the Nervous system because Neurons lack molecules which are necessary to present viral cells on the surface to killer cell and provides a safe house for the viruses to replicate. Viruses can persist for host’s lifetime if once it gets into the hosts neuron.Clinical virology characterises or isolates the viruses which are responsible for human pathologies by direct or indirect ways. Example of some tests to identify the viruses responsible for infection in humans are Influenza A RNA detection, HCV genotyping, BK virus DNA quantitation, HIV integrase inhibitor resistance testing.

On a molecular level the study of viruses are known as Molecular Virology. Viruses have large biological diversity as it successfully infect and parasitize plants animals and microorganisms. They can effectively contaminate and parasitize a wide range of life structures from microorganisms to plants and animals and therefore viruses have more biological diversities than bacterial, plant, and creature kingdoms combined. Studying these differences is the key to a better understanding of how infections interact with their hosts, duplicate inside them, and cause diseases.

Immunology is the branch of biomedical sciences that covers all aspects of the immune system in all multicellular organisms such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi, and also parasitic organisms, such as helminth worms. Cell signalling is part of a complex system of communication that administers basic cellular activities and coordinates cell activities. A Neutralizing antibody is an antibody which safeguards a cell from an antigen or infectious body by inhibiting or neutralizing any effect it has biologically. Cell-mediated immunity is an immune response that does not involve antibodies, but rather involves the activation of phagocytes, antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, and the release of various cytokines in response to an antigen.

Agriculture and Plant virology deals with the cyclic development of  viral disease within plant. Transgenic plants are genetically modified using recombinant DNA technique to create plants with new characteristics. Brome Mosaic Virus- a small icosahedral positive stranded RNA plant virus which is found where wheat and barley is grown. Tobacco-mosaic virus- is a single stranded RNA virus that causes mottling and discolouration of tobacco leaves. Cucumber mosaic virus-are the plant pathogenic virus that occurs in cucumber and tomato plants. Alfalfa mosaic virus- is a phytopathogen that leads to yellow mosaics and necrosis on commercially important crops such as peas, lentils, clovers. Rice Stripe Virus- is a RNA plant pathogen that infects plants such as wheat, corn and rice.

Veterinary virology is the branch of veterinary medicine. It is the study of the viruses in non-human animals. Research in virology and veterinary virology studies the pathogenicity, diagnostic ,identification ,epidemiology and immune responses to a range of viral pathogens for example-Japanese encephalitis virus, HIV, respiratory syncytial virus, cytomegalovirus and other herpes viruses , chicken metapneumovirus, feline calicivirus and Schmallenberg virus. Techniques used include: diagnostic identification methods, flow cytometry, ELISA, epidemiology, PCR and transcriptomic and genomic technologies, including metagenomics, resequencing and genotyping cell separation, proteomics and infection models.

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi and protozoa. This discipline includes fundamental research on the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, ecology, evolution and clinical aspects of microorganisms, including the host response to these agents.

Fungi are everywhere. There are approximately 1.5 million different species of fungi on Earth, but only about 300 of those are known to make people sick. Fungal diseases are often caused by fungi that are common in the environment. Fungi live outdoors in soil and on plants and trees as well as on many indoor surfaces and on human skin. Most fungi are not dangerous, but some types can be harmful to health.

Bacterial and viral infections have many things in common. Both types of infections are caused by microbes -- bacteria and viruses, respectively -- and spread by things such as Coughing and sneezing, Contact with infected people, Contact with contaminated surfaces, food, and water,Contact with infected creatures, including pets, livestock, and insects such as fleas and ticks.

A parasitic disease, also known as parasitosis, is an infectious disease caused or transmitted by a parasite. Many parasites do not cause diseases. Parasitic diseases can affect practically all living organisms, including plants and mammals. The study of parasitic diseases is called parasitology.

Some parasites like Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium spp. can cause disease directly, but other organisms can cause disease by the toxins that they produce.

Current research in virology includes the investigation of mechanism of HIV replication and pathogenesis .Diseases such as prion diseases, Alzheimer's disease and HIV-1-associated dementia. Other research involves chronic and latent infections caused by viruses such as Epstein-Barr and Kaposi's sarcoma associated herpes virus and herpes simplex. Researcher are also studying viral host interactions along with the mechanism of viral induced cellular transformation.
