FEATURES OF FUNDAMENTALS OF MOLECULAR VIROLOGY:
  • Clear style. Written in a simple and clear style for students with a background in cell and molecular biology.
  • Full–color figures. Numerous full–color figures complement the text and illustrate virus structure, genome organization, and individual steps in virus replication.
  • Extended coverage. This second edition has five new chapters: Cucumber Mosaic Virus; Viruses of Archaea; Viruses of Algae and the giant Mimivirus; Intrinsic Cellular Responses Against Virus Infection; and Innate and Adaptive Immune Responses to Virus Infection. All other chapters have been revised and updated.
  • Study aids include thumbnail sketches of each virus group, informative chapter subheadings, and a comprehensive glossary with definitions of numerous terms.
  • Chapter introductions give historical background and information about viral diseases.
  • Text boxes throughout the book feature exciting and current developments in molecular virology or practical applications of viruses in science and medicine.
  • Key Terms, Fundamental Concepts, and Review Questions at the end of each chapter help students review and organize information they have learned.
  • Information on human pathogens. Includes chapters on important human pathogens including herpes viruses, hepatitis B and C viruses, human immunodeficiency virus, influenza viruses, measles virus, poliovirus, smallpox virus, West Nile virus, and others.
