Authors:  Jane Flint, Professor, Molecular Biology, Princeton University;  Vincent Racaniello, Higgins Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Columbia University Medical Center;  Glenn Rall, Professor, Associate Chief Academic Officer and Director of the Postdoctoral Program, Fox Chase Cancer Center; Anna Marie Skalka, Professor and WW Smith Chair in Cancer Research, Fox Chase Cancer Center, and Director Emerita of the Institute for Cancer Research

 

Principles of Virology is the leading virology textbook because it does more than collect and present facts about individual viruses. Instead, it facilitates an understanding of basic virology by examining the shared processes and capabilities of viruses. Using a set of representative viruses to present the complexity and diversity of a myriad of viruses, this rational approach enables students to understand how reproduction is accomplished by known viruses and provides the tools for future encounters with new or understudied viruses.

This fully updated edition represents the rapidly changing field of virology. A major new feature is the inclusion of 26 video interviews with leading scientists who have made significant contributions to the field of virology.

Watch and listen as the authors detail these features and other comprehensive updates to the fourth edition

 

 

Applicable courses: undergraduate courses in virology and microbiology as well as graduate courses in virology and infectious diseases.
