Principles of Virology Molecular Biology, Pathogenesis, and Control
Completely revised and updated to reflect important advances in the field, "Principles of Virology, Second Edition" continues to fill the gap between simple introductory texts and very advanced reviews of major virus families, introducing upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and medical students to all aspects of virology.
Principles of Virology, Fourth Edition
The basic thesis of the course is that all viruses adopt a common strategy. The strategy is simple:. Genomes encode gene products that promote an infectious cycle mechanisms for genomes to enter cells, replicate, and exit in particles. Infection patterns range from benign to lethal; infections can overcome or co-exist with host defenses. Despite the apparent simplicity, the tactics evolved by particular virus families to survive and prosper are remarkable. Virology has enabled a more detailed understanding of the structure and function of molecules, cells and organisms and has provided fundamental understanding of disease and virus evolution. The course will emphasize the common reactions that must be completed by all viruses for successful reproduction within a host cell and survival and spread within a host population.

I am pleased to announce the publication by ASM Press of the fourth edition of our virology textbook, Principles of Virology. Two years in the making, this new edition is fully updated to represent the rapidly changing field of virology. Studying the phases of the viral reproductive cycle, illustrated with a set of representative viruses, provides an overview of the steps required to maintain these infectious agents in nature. Such knowledge cannot be acquired by learning a collection of facts about individual viruses. Consequently, the major goal of this book is to define and illustrate the basic principles of animal virus biology. This edition is marked by a change in the author team. Our new member, Glenn Rall, has brought expertise in viral immunology and pathogenesis, pedagogical clarity, and down-to-earth humor to our work.
