Primary Entity http: CreativeWork , schema: The third edition retains the essential organization and much—praised features of the first two editions. The two books focus on concepts and principles and together present a comprehensive treatment from molecular biology to pathogenesis and control of viral infections. Written in an engaging style and generously illustrated with over full—color illustrations, these accessible volumes offer detailed examples to illustrate common principles, specific strategies to ensure replication and propagation of viruses, and a crucial overview of the current state of research in virology.
The two volumes are divided into chapters that focus on specific topics rather than individual virus families to help students understand common themes across the spectrum of these families. Drawing on the extensive teaching experience of each of its distinguished authors, Principles of Virology illustrates why and how animal viruses are studied and demonstrates how the knowledge gained from such model viruses can be used to study viral systems that are still relatively unknown.
A thorough introduction to principles of viral pathogenesis, a broad view of viral evolution, a discussion of how viruses were discovered, and an explanation of the history of the discipline of virology are also provided. A variety of text boxes highlight key experiments, background material, caveats, and much more. Flint L.
