This new, fully revised second edition of Fundamentals of Molecular Virology is designed for university students learning about virology at the undergraduate or graduate level. Chapters cover most of the major virus families, emphasizing the unique features of each virus family. These chapters are designed to tell stories about the viruses covered, and include information on discovery, diseases and pathogenesis, virus structure, steps in viral replication, and interaction with cellular signaling pathways. This approach portrays the “personality” of each virus, helping students to learn the material and to build up their knowledge of virology, starting with smaller and simpler viruses and proceeding to more complex viruses.

Review:

“I like the overall organization and “directness”in the writing. The chapter outlines that cover the basic featuresof the virus discussed are quite useful. The illustrations areclear and easy to interpret.”  -MichaelGraves, University of Massachusetts –Lowell

“Having each chapter that covers a specific virus writtenby an expert in the field then having Acheson bring the materialinto a common style is an excellent approach. I enjoy the slightstylistic differences that I find in the chapters, but Acheson hasa direct and concise approach that makes the information throughoutthe text understandable for students. Chapters are short anddirect. The table of contents is informative. Sections within thechapters are logically organized and headings are informative. Theboxes provide interesting side topics in an extremely concisemanner. Overall, I find Acheson to be an excellent text.”-William Tapprich, University of Nebraska– Omaha

“The conceptual approach to virus biology is the greateststrength of the text. The book has the appropriate level ofmolecular detail and it is presented in a manner that anundergraduate can readily grasp. It is a highly readabletext.” -Sharon Roberts, AuburnUniversity
