Biography

Claude Fauquet is a renowned plant virologist that has now embarked on plant biotechnology for the last 10 years. Dr. Fauquet has extensive experience in field virology and epidemiology, but also in molecular and experimental virology. He is mostly interested in tropical plant viruses and particularly in geminiviruses that are devastating tropical crops. In 1991, he became Director of ILTAB (International Laboratory for Agricultural Biotechnology), a joint French-American project aiming at transferring plant biotechnologies to less developing countries.

Media reviews
It is of interest not only to virologists, but also to other microbiologists, molecular biologists, geneticists and physicochemists. The book is fascinating even for the non-specialist. It should become a firm component of any library of biomedical sciences. -VIRUS RESEARCH (February 2002) Virus Taxonomy is comprehensive, concise, well laid out and easily readable. As a reference source for virologists, this book is a must for the institutional library. -MICROBIOLOGY TODAY
