Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: With the vast developments in the virology field in the past three decades it is a challenge to keep abreast of new developments. While the specialist literature has grown at a rapid pace, books for students have not kept pace. As a result, the field has lacked a modern primer for some time. Basic Virology is for instructors everywhere who need an engaging and concise introduction to this challenging subject.

For students, Basic Virology provides an accessible synthesis to those who need to master the fundamentals of virology. The basic concepts of molecular biology and immunology are carefully addressed and molecular detail increases as the book progresses. This unique organization will lend itself to many syllabi.

  • Strong pedagogy makes this complex subject more comprehensible.
  • Combined presentation of viral families and viral functions satisfies the needs of instructors with either approach.
  • Reinforcement material - students will quickly achieve understanding of basic skills in molecular biology, and rudimentary aspects of immunology, pathology & disease.
