We are considering some work with the Epstein Barr virus, and have a
few questions about it that we hope someone is able to answer.
1) What is the proper (latin I guess) species, genus, organism etc.
name for this virus?
2) The virus resides in a cell line called MCUV5. What cell line is
this, where does it come from, what does the name mean?
3) What are the clinical aspects, dangers, risks, etc associated
with working with EBV?
Any comments, or pointers to as where the information can be found
would be greatly appreciated.
