Designed for students learning about viruses for the first time(t the undergraduate or graduate level), Fundamentals of Molecular Virology is presented in a style which relates to today's students and professors. The text approaches learning about virology by presenting a set of chapters each of which covers a specific virus family, using one or two well-studied viruses as examples. Each chapter is designed to tell a story about the virus under discussion, and to portray the "personality" of that virus. The text incorporates lessons from classic and contemporary concepts providing a well-rounded presentation on the subject of virology. FEATURES OF FUNDAMENTALS OF MOLECULAR VIROLOGY * Unique, Applied Chapter Stories. Each chapter presents a unique example or case to help introduce the students to the different viruses that will be studied or examined in that chapter. * Evolutionary Boxes. Feature exciting and current developments in molecular virology. These are integrated throughout the entire book and can be found in every chapter. These help students understand the importance of currency and application of virology. * Comprehensive, Illustrative Art Program. The text contains a number of two-color figures which focus on the individual steps in virus replication and helps draw student's attention to important concepts and details. * Coverage of Human Pathogens. Includes chapters that cover important human pathogens such as smallpox virus, measles virus, poliovirus, herpes viruses, human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B virus, Ebola virus, SARS corona virus, West Nile virus, and others. What instructors are saying about Fundamentals of Molecular Virology "I like the structured treatment that is presented in Acheson. Overall, it is one of the best written and clearly organized texts on the subject I have seen." - Jeannine Williams, College of Marin "I found the text very readable and believe it will appeal to a wide audience of students...I believe this text will have broad appeal in a field where few texts exist." - Michael Roner, The University of Texas at Arlington "The main strength of the book is the great molecular detail the author achieves, but still at a level that an undergraduate student should be able to master. I like the blend of molecular with medical; this has been lacking in most virology books that I have considered using." - Darlene Walro, Walsh University

Vom Gen zur Pathogenese Das Lehrbuch Molekulare Virologie, seit vielen Jahren als unentbehrliches Standardwerk für Fachleute und Studenten etabliert, liegt nun wieder in einer überarbeiteten und erweiterten Neuauflage vor. Neben der durchgängigen Aktualisierung der Inhalte und Literaturzitate sind unter anderem Layout und Format des Buches angepasst sowie die eingestreuten Exkurse, die schlaglichtartig interessante Einzelthemen beleuchten, thematisch differenziert worden. Durch Einbindung eines zusätzlichen Autors sind zudem humanmedizinisch-klinische Aspekte nun noch stärker berücksichtigt. Molekulare Virologie ist eine Einführung in die molekular- und zellbiologischen Grundlagen von Virusinfektionen bei Mensch und Tier. Das Buch vermittelt einen ausgewogenen Überblick über humanpathogene und tierpathogene Viren. Mit seiner klaren Gliederung und verständlichen Darstellung weist dieses systematisch angelegte Lehr- und Nachschlagewerk sowohl Studenten und Dozenten der Biologie, Human- und Veterinärmedizin als auch Virologen, forschungsorientierten Klinikern, Tierärzten und Seuchenmedizinern sowie Fachleute in Mikrobiologie, Hygiene und Diagnostik den Weg durch die Vielfalt der virologischen Forschungsergebnisse. Im ersten Teil des Buches arbeiten die Autoren die allgemeinen Prinzipien der Struktur, Vermehrung und Lebenszyklen von Viren heraus und beschreiben die wichtigsten pathogenetischen und immunologischen Mechanismen viraler Erkrankungen. Auch die Diagnostik und Therapie sowie die Epidemiologie solcher Infektionen und das heutige Methodenrepertoire der Virologen werden hier vorgestellt. Der zweite, spezielle Teil führt dann systematisch durch die Vielfalt der human- und tierpathogenen Viren. Ausführlich werden zum einen die Morphologie, die Genomorganisation und die Proteinaustattung sowie die Replikationsmechanismen der verschiedenen Virusfamilien dargestellt. Für die jeweils wichtigsten Vertreter präsentieren die Autoren zum anderen einen Überblick über die relevanten humanmedizinisch-klinischen beziehungsweise veterinärmedizinischen Aspekte. Auch seuchenrechtliche Aspekte kommen hier zur Sprache. Dem Autorenteam gelingt es mit diesem Werk erneut, Virologie in ihrer ganzen Spannbreite - vom Molekül bis zur Klinik - überschaubar zu machen. Mit der konsequenten Verknüpfung dieser beiden Zugänge schlägt dieses Werk zudem dringend benötigte Brücken zwischen (molekular)biologischer Grundlagenforschung und medizinischer Anwendung.

"Combining the molecular, clinical, and historical aspects of virology, Understanding Viruses is a textbook for the modern undergraduate virology course. The text provides an introduction to human viral diseases. Additional chapters on viral diseases of animals; the history of clinical trials, gene therapy, and xenotransplantation; prions and viroids; plant viruses; and bacteriophages add to the coverage."--BOOK JACKET.

This book contemplates the structure, dynamics and physics of virus particles: From the moment they come into existence by self-assembly from viral components produced in the infected cell, through their extracellular stage, until they recognise and infect a new host cell and cease to exist by losing their physical integrity to start a new infectious cycle. (Bio)physical techniques used to study the structure of virus particles and components, and some applications of structure-based studies of viruses are also contemplated. This book is aimed first at M.Sc. students, Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers with a university degree in biology, chemistry, physics or related scientific disciplines who share an interest or are actually working on viruses. We have aimed also at providing an updated account of many important concepts, techniques, studies and applications in structural and physical virology for established scientists working on viruses, irrespective of their physical, chemical or biological background and their field of expertise. We have not attempted to provide a collection of for-experts-only reviews focused mainly on the latest research in specific topics; we have not generally assumed that the reader knows all of the jargon and all but the most recent and advanced results in each topic dealt with in this book. In short, we have attempted to write a book basic enough to be useful to M.Sc and Ph.D. students, as well as advanced and current enough to be useful to senior scientists with an interest in Structural and/or Physical Virology.
