About this book

Designed to fill the existing gap between simple introductory texts and very advanced reviews of major virus families, Principles of Virology introduces upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and medical students to all aspects of virology. Written in an engagingly readable style and generously illustrated with over 400 full-color illustrations, this approachable volume offers detailed examples that illustrate common principles, specific strategies adopted by different viruses to ensure their reproduction, and the current state of virology research.
