This quantity is an test at a compre hensive but compact survey of virology, which has intended penetrating the inflexible limits of the separate disciplines of biology during which virologists have labored. penning this background of experimental virology was once particularly a look for the origins and for important signposts to painting the huge scope of the data attained so far. This used to be performed in com plete expertise of the truth that each presentation relies seriously upon the point of view of the observer, and of necessity communi cates just a a part of the full. the current medical tale hopes to recount an important wisdom completed in this earlier century - the 1st century of the intriguing advancements in virology.

Smith, which evoked more criticism than consensus in Europe. Nevertheless, there was soon enough proof of bacteria as causative agents also in the field of phytopathology. On the whole, the morphological and physiological specificity of microbial causative agents was no longer contested at the close of the 19th century.
Nevertheless, it is essential to explain how it was possible to arrive at Koch's postulates in a manner which contradicted Koch himself. The Virus and Koch's Postulates 33 Koch's co-workers were well aware of his strict demands for each and every experiment, which as a rule was intended to prove something. These requirements for laboratory work might also be considered postulates in the sense of a challenge to observation. It was not Koch, but two of his co-workers, namely Hueppe and Lamer who wrote about the postulates from this point of view.
Isolating the germs according to Koch's rules and subsequent inoculations proved unsuccessful, and led Mayer to exclude the isolated bacteria as causative agents. Thereafter, he attempted in filtration trials to clarify whether the pathogenic matter belonged - as in alcoholic or lactic fermentation to the yeast or bacterial enzyme group. He used single-layered filter paper, which allowed the pathogens to pass through, and then doublelayered ones, which rendered them impermeant. His attempts to find the enzyme were in vain.
