Book Description. This book focuses on current research into both Ebola and Marburg viruses. Emphasis is placed on the genomics of the viruses, their molecular properties and their taxonomy. Further chapters consider how the viruses evolve and replicate and there are discussions on the spread of these viruses and their pathogenicity. This book is intended to present current concepts in molecular biology with the emphasis on the application to animal, plant and human pathology, in various aspects such as etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention of diseases. ( views).

In addition, retroviruses are proving to be valuable research tools in molecular biology and have been used successfully in gene therapy (e.g. to treat X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency). Written by the top retroviral specialists, this book reviews the genomics, molecular biology, and pathogenesis of these important viruses. With the author's expertise and a narrow focus on the topic, one might think that a book devoted entirely to viruses would be aimed at those who need a highly detailed, technical guide to the more than viruses that are profiled. The Introduction provides an exceptional overview of viruses, with the information a reader needs to begin .

A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea. Since Dmitri Ivanovsky's article describing a non-bacterial pathogen infecting tobacco plants, and the discovery of the tobacco mosaic virus by Martinus Beijerinck in (unranked): Virus. Author: Nicholas H. Acheson; Publisher: Wiley Global Education ISBN: Category: Science Page: View: DOWNLOAD NOW» Designed for students learning about viruses for the first time at the undergraduate or graduate level, Fundamentals of Molecular Virology is presented in a style which relates to today's students and professors.

The book is likely to appeal, and be useful, to a wide audience that includes students, academics and researchers studying the molecular biology and applications of viruses. Show less. Viruses: Molecular Biology, Host Interactions, and Applications to Biotechnology provides an up-to-date introduction to human, animal and plant viruses within.

Molecular and Cellular Biology of Viruses leads students on an exploration of viruses by supporting engaging and interactive learning. All the major classes of viruses are covered, with separate chapters for their replication and expression strategies, and chapters for mechanisms such as attachment that are independent of the virus genome type.5/5(6).

The Molecular Biology of Viruses is a collection of manuscripts presented at the Third Annual International Symposium of the Molecular Biology of Viruses, held in the University of Alberta, Canada on June, sponsored by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Alberta.

The book builds upon the last handbook (written over twenty years ago) on the part of diagnostics and extensively expands its scope by inclusion of molecular biology aspects of select viruses that are widespread and economically most important.

Although many questions concerning the basic biology of these viruses remain to be answered, a large amount of data related to the molecular biology of EAV and PRRSV have already been obtained. In this chapter, we will review the basic aspects of arterivirus classification architecture, replication, genetic variation, pathogenesis, vaccination.

Book Description. Viruses interact with host cells in ways that uniquely reveal a great deal about general aspects of molecular and cellular structure and function. Molecular and Cellular Biology of Viruses leads students on an exploration of viruses by supporting engaging and interactive learning.

All the major classes of viruses are covered. Molecular Biology, Third Edition, provides a thoroughly revised, invaluable resource for college and university students in the life sciences, medicine and related fields.

This esteemed text continues to meet the needs of students and professors by offering new chapters on RNA, genome defense, and epigenetics, along with expanded coverage of RNAi, CRISPR, and more ensuring topical content for. The discovery of the causative agent, hepatitis C virus (HCV), in has initiated an almost unparalleled research activity in academic and pharmaceutical-industry laboratories over the ensuing years.

This book aims to provide a state-of-the-art account of recent advances in the molecular and cellular biology, immunology and pathogenesis of HCV. In this multi-author work, Mettenleiter and Sobrino have compiled 10 chapters that describe what is currently known about the molecular biology of some of the most interesting viruses of veterinary importance, from the tiny circovirus of pigs (1, nt of single-stranded DNA) to the highly complex African swine fever virus (≈, nt pairs of double-stranded DNA).Cited by: Advances in Molecular Retrovirology.

This book gives a comprehensive overview of recent advances in Retrovirology, as well as general concepts of molecular biology of retroviral infections, immunopathology, diagnosis, and prevention, to current clinical recommendations in management of retroviruses, including endogenous retroviruses, highlighting the ongoing issues, recent advances, with.

Most of us know about viruses, and that they spread disease. But what is a virus exactly. Is it alive. How does it infect a host. There's a lot to discuss he. Viruses with a broad host range are relatively rare. However, this does not preclude the possibility of new strains of virus evolving with different host ranges from their ancestral virii.

Viruses may have either RNA or DNA genomes, that may be linear or circular, and single or double-stranded.

There are fewer variations of capsid structure. About the Book.
