Now in two conveniently sized volumes, Principles of Virology, 3rd Edition, is completely revised and updated to reflect important advances in the field. The textbook continues to fill the gap between introductory texts and advanced reviews of major virus families. These two volumes provide upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and medical students with a state-of-the-art introduction to all aspects of virology. Written in an engaging style and generously illustrated with over 600 full-color illustrations, these accessible volumes offer detailed examples to illustrate common principles, specific strategies to ensure replication and propagation of viruses, and a crucial overview of the current state of research in virology. The two stand-alone volumes illustrate the strategies by which all viruses are propagated, how infections spread, and how they are maintained in populations. Volume I features the molecular processes that take place in an infected cell. Volume II offers a concise treatment of the interplay between viruses and their host organisms. Introduces new chapters that discuss principles of infection of hosts and populations as well as a basic introduction to the mathematics of viral growth

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. The second edition retains all of the defining and much–praised features of the first edition, focusing on concepts and principles and presenting a comprehensive treatment from molecular biology to pathogenesis and infection control. Written in an engagingly readable style and generously illustrated with over 400 full–color illustrations, this approachable volume offers detailed examples that illustrate common principles, specific strategies adopted by different viruses to ensure their reproduction, and the current state of virology research. The book is divided into chapters that focus on specific topics rather than individual viruses, and allows the student to visualize common themes that cut across virus families, emphasizing the shared features of different viruses. Drawing on the extensive teaching experience of each of its distinguished authors, Principles of Virology illustrates why and how animal viruses are studied and demonstrates, using well–studied systems, how the knowledge gained from such model viruses can be used to study viral systems about which our knowledge is still quite limited. A thorough introduction to principles of viral pathogenesis, a broad view of viral evolution, a discussion of how viruses were discovered, and how the discipline of virology came to be are also provided. A variety of special boxes highlight key experiments, background material, caveats, and much more. The text focuses on concepts and principles and covers not only aspects of molecular biology, but also pathogenesis, evolution, emergence, and control, and will also be a valuable resource for practicing physicians and scientists. New in the Second Edition Completely revised pathogenesis chapters Pathogenicity Snapshots: an appendix highlighting teaching points for major viral diseases Expanded appendix on viral life cycles New chapter on viral genomes and coding strategies Detailed glossary Expanded references after each chapter new textboxes

Includes access to the Student Companion Website with every print copy of the text. Written for the more concise course, Principles of Molecular Biology is modeled after Burton Tropp's successful Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins and is appropriate for the sophomore level course. The author begins with an introduction to molecular biology, discussing what it is and how it relates to applications in "real life" with examples pulled from medicine and industry. An overview of protein structure and function follows, and from there the text covers the various roles of technology in elucidating the central concepts of molecular biology, from both a historical and contemporary perspective. Tropp then delves into the heart of the book with chapters focused on chromosomes, genetics, replication, DNA damage and repair, recombination, transposition, transcription, and wraps up with translation. Key Features: - Presents molecular biology from a biochemical perspective, utilizing model systems, as they best describe the processes being discussed -Special Topic boxes throughout focus on applications in medicine and technology -Presents "real world" applications of molecular biology that are necessary for students continuing on to medical school or the biotech industry -An end-of-chapter study guide includes questions for review and discussion -Difficult or complicated concepts are called-out in boxes to further explain and simplify

Principles and Practice of Clinical Virology is the bible for all working in the field of clinical virology – from the trainee to the expert because there’s always something new to learn! As before, the book provides a detailed account of the diagnosis and treatment of virus infections, with a stronger emphasis on clinical expertise and management. Each chapter deals with a single virus or group or viruses and is written by leading international experts in the field. What’s new in this edition ... Showcases the wealth of new knowledge acquired on virus infections and reflects the discovery of newly recognized emerging infections, the improvement or development of new vaccines, and an increasing repertoire of antiviral agents for treatment All chapters have been thoroughly revised and there are a number of new contributors, joining the cadre of internationally-recognized experts Includes a new chapter on vaccinology covering the principles relating to the development and use of vaccines generally, which complements the specific vaccines described in the other chapters The two chapters on nosocomial infections have been enlarged and will be particularly useful for those having to advise on the management of hospital-acquired infections Emphasizes the rapid accumulation of new information in such fields as retroviruses, particularly HIV, SARS, hepatitis C and influenza, including avian influenza
