Biology of Viruses Summary

Biology of Viruses by B.A. Voyles

This text provides coverage of viruses by treating them as entities facing particular problems associated with their unique "life cycle". Devoting one or two chapters to each stage in a "typical" viral life cycle, the text presents conceptual themes related to the general problems viruses face in each stage. Content focuses on how the different families of viruses have evolved various strategies to survive as intracellular parasites and for each stage explores the molecular genetics of a representative member for each viral group.
