is the leading virology textbook because it does more than collect and present facts about individual viruses. Instead, it facilitates an understanding of basic virology by examining common processes and principles. Using a set of representative viruses to illustrate viral complexity and, this rational approach enables students to understand viral reproduction, and provides the tools for future encounters with new or understudied viruses.

This new edition is fully updated to represent the rapidly changing field of virology. A major new feature of this edition is the inclusion of 26 video interviews with leading scientists who have made significant contributions to the field of virology. These in-depth interviews, conducted by Vincent Racaniello, provide the background and thinking that went into the discoveries or observations connected to the concepts being taught in this text. Students will discover the personal stories and twists of fate that led the scientists to work with viruses and make their seminal discoveries.

is ideal for teaching the strategies by which all viruses reproduce, spread within a host, and are maintained within populations. It is appropriate for undergraduate courses in virology and microbiology as well as graduate courses in virology and infectious diseases. covers the molecular biology of viral reproduction. addresses the interplay between viruses and their host organisms. The two volumes can be used for separate courses or together in a single course. Each includes a unique appendix, glossary, and links to Internet resources such as websites, podcasts, and blogs.
