Huh? And in english what would you ay?
If I guess correctly you are interested in staining method to visualize viruses. Well since they can only (but one) be seen with electron microscope, I suggest you research the staining methods suitable for elctron microscopy. Since they depend on the kind of microscope I can't really tell.
You could also have a look at immuno staining.

Good luck for your homework.

And I renamed your topic, read the rules for posting, thanks.

You're not going to be much of a vet if you don't take biochem and microbiology lol. You could probably become an animal breeder if you don't like those subjects.

Weel you need to know it very well, in order to understand it and apply it to your animals. For example, if your animal has a bacterial infection you need to recognise the bacteria and know which antibiotics it is vulnerable to
