9780121585327: Principles of Molecular Virology (1)

The author has incorporated the comments of numerous reviewers and users into this revision, and has expanded coverage of plant viruses and the molecular basis for antiviral drugs and vaccines. The material on the pathogenesis of AIDS, prions, emerging diseases (such as Ebola) and taxonomy has been thoroughly updated, and the diagrams have been improved. This volume provides an introduction to modern virology. Focusing on a molecular approach, it presents the principles of virology in a clear manner that gives students of biology or medicine a comprehensive understanding of the subject. The text explores and explains the fundamental aspects of virology including structure of virus particles and genomes, virus replication, control of gene expression, virus pathogenesis (including AIDS), and detailed, up-to-date discussions of prion diseases.
