A Tale of Two Viruses
Parallels in the Research Trajectories of Tumor and Bacterial Viruses
Sankaran masterfully transcribes her infectious enthusiasm for her subject, underpinned by a thorough mastery of archival material as well as a great respect for the available historiography. . . . A Tale of Two Viruses provides an excellent illustration of the narrative possibilities of Plutarchian parallel case studies. It will, hopefully, encourage similar explorations across the history of biology and the history of science and technology more widely.
