Principles of Virology: Molecular Biology, Pathogenesis, and Control
|von S. Jane Flint|
Book News, Inc. An introductory textbook that illustrates why and how animal viruses are studied and highlights unifying principles that can be applied to outstanding questions in virology and to viral systems that are not well understood. Five microbiologists (Princeton, U. of Texas-Austin, Columbia U., and the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia) have been selective in their choice of topics, viruses, and examples and recommend fuller treatments. They also generally omit references from the text, but end each chapter with a list of relevant material. Reproduction cycles in single cells of viruses that are used as examples in the text are described and enschemed in an appendix for quick reference. -- Copyright © 2000 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved
Synopsis Designed to fill the existing gap between simple introductory texts and very advanced reviews of major virus families, this volume introduces upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and medical students to all aspects of virology. Written in a readable style and illustrated with over 400 full-colour illustrations, this approachable volume offers detailed examples that illustrate common principles, specific strategies adopted by different viruses to ensure their reproduction, and the state...
