This undergraduate-accessible book covers all the foundational topics in virology, including:
- The basics of virology
- Virological techniques
- Molecular biology
- Pathogenesis of human viral disease

The 4th edition includes new information on the SARS, MERS and COVID-19 coronaviruses, hepatitis C virus, influenza virus, as well as HIV and Ebola.
