Praised forits clarity of presentation and accessibility, Introduction to Modern Virology has been a successful student text for over 30 years. It provides a broad introduction to virology, which includes the nature of viruses, the interaction of viruses with their hosts and the consequences of those interactions that lead to the diseases we see. This new edition contains a number of important changes and innovations including: The consideration of immunology now covers two chapters, one on innate immunity and the other on adaptive immunity, reflecting the explosion in knowledge of viral interactions with these systems. The coverage of vaccines and antivirals has been expanded and separated into two new chapters to reflect the importance of these approaches to prevention and treatment. Virus infections in humans are considered in more detail with new chapters on viral hepatitis, influenza, vector-borne diseases, and exotic and emerging viral infections, complementing an updated chapter on HIV. The final section includes three new chapters on the broader aspects of the influence of viruses on our lives, focussing on the economic impact of virus infections, the ways we can use viruses in clinical and other spheres, and the impact that viruses have on the planet and almost every aspect of our lives. A good basic understanding of viruses is important for generalists and specialists alike. The aim of this book is to make such understanding as accessible as possible, allowing students across the biosciences spectrum to improve their knowledge of these fascinating entities.

The latest edition of this best–selling textbook continues to provide a unique cross–sectional study of virology. The text emphasizes structural and functional principles common to different species of virus rather than attempting a less useful taxonomic analysis. An entirely new chapter on HIV and AIDS has been added, providing a valuable vertical profile of an extremely important viral infection. The coverage of all aspects of immunology has been fully updated to take account of recent advances, especially in the T–cell area and in their relation to viral pathogenesis. New and powerful techniques such as PCR are explained in detail and their importance in virology demonstrated. The fourth edition will retain its place as the textbook of choice in virology, continuing to relate our current understanding of viral structure and function in relation to disease, and demonstrating how advances in molecular and cell biology and genetics are affecting the study and control of viruses.

Virology is a clear and accessible introduction to this fast moving field, providing a comprehensive resource enabling students to understand the key concepts surrounding this exciting subject. The authors have produced a text that stimulates and encourages the student through the extensive use of clear, colour-coded diagrams. Taking a modern approach to the subject, the relevance of virology to everyday life is clearly emphasised and discussion on emerging viruses, cancer, vaccines, anti-viral drugs gene vectors and pesticides is included. This title: Provides an introduction to the theories behind the origins of viruses and how they are evolving with discussion on emerging viruses Includes numerous diagrams with standard colour coding for different types of molecule such as DNA, messenger RNA, other virus RNA’s proteins – all diagrams are carefully developed and clearly labelled to enhance student understanding Features self-contained descriptions of the complete replication cycles of a selection of viruses Introduces the relevance of virology to the modern world including the latest developments in the field - HIV, Foot and Mouth disease, Ebola, SARS and MMR Presents summary boxes, further reading and an associated website to include the latest developments Virology is an essential textbook for all undergraduate students of biology, microbiology and biomedical sciences taking courses in virology. It is also an invaluable resource for MSc level students who have previously done little or no virology and are looking for an accessible introduction to the subject.

Viruses are some of the simplest infectious agents on the planet, yet can cause severe and even life-threatening diseases in all forms of life - including humans. Despite relying on host cells in order to replicate, viruses can be capable of extremely rapid reproduction and very effective transmission from one person to another. Because of this, they have historically represented a significant proportion of the disease burden affectinghumans.Human Virology provides a vivid introduction to this fascinating field, by incorporating both the molecular and clinical aspects of the subject. Throughout the text, case studies bring the subject tolife by providing a unique perspective from real practicing doctors. In addition new 'hot topic' boxes have been incorporated into this edition, featuring current important areas of research. Little prior knowledge is assumed, making Human Virology the perfect text for those students new to the subject.
