MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

With the emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the increased interest in all nidoviruses, the urgent need for a comprehensive book on the subject has never been more evident. is the first volume to cover the entire nidovirus order, including arteriviruses, toroviruses, roniviruses, and several recently identified human coronaviruses. Ranging from basic biology to immunology and clinical disease, this volume provides crucial information for researchers in virology, epidemiology, biochemistry, cell biology, pathogenesis, and antiviral drug development.

Compared to other RNA viruses, the sheer size of nidovirus genomes and complexity of replication makes them a comparatively difficult group to study. Identification of various members of the Nidovirales as the causative agents of a number of significant, newly emerged animal diseases, plus human SARS, combined with technological advances in molecular biology has led to a rapid advance in the field over the past few years. This book is, therefore, very timely indeed. The discussion of the evolution of nidoviruses alongside the comprehensive account of the genome structures and expression strategies provides the perfect entree for the book. Subsequent chapters are also provided by leading laboratories such that all aspects of virus life cycles and host responses one would wish to see are covered. The layout of the text is clear, logical and very well illustrated. In summary, a comprehensive and authoritative volume representing a valuable and cost-effective asset to researchers and teachers.
