Basic Virology is the essential introductory text for the student or for the researcher who needs a solid foundation in virology and its relationship to modern biology. This accessible text focuses on the fundamentals of virology while stressing the basic concepts of molecular biology and immunology.

The second edition of this successful text features thoroughly updated material on HIV treatment, emerging diseases, West Nile virus, smallpox, bioterrorism and SARS. More than a simple update, the new edition also features a new viral genome section with strategies for including microarrays and DNA chips.

Outstanding features of the second edition of Basic Virology include:


  • New dedicated website – original animations and online resources provide students and instructors with an enhanced understanding of the field – www.blackwellpublishing.com/wagner
  • Chapter outlines – provide a quick means for the student and instructor to skim the material presented in the chapter in order to prepare for lectures or exams more effectively
  • Revised and enhanced Review Questions – follow the end of each chapter to help reinforce the material for students
  • Cumulative End of Section Problems – integrate the various concepts covered in the section and challenge the student to synthesize the material they have just learned
  • The Resource Center – provides general sources of supplementary information, further readings in molecular biology, virology, and basic techniques at the end of the text
  • Expanded coverage of genomics methods – includes the latest techniques such as atomic force microscopy.

Review:

"This volume is the best basic molecular virology book I have seen in a while. It's an excellent resource, primarily written for students, but will also be of great use to more experienced researchers who are new to a particular field of virology... I cannot recommend this book more highly." Christopher Ring, Glaxo SmthKline R&D, Microbiology Today, March 2004

Published Reviews of the 2nd Edition

"This book offers an excellent forum for both students and instructors to examine the world of virology. I would not hesitate using this book in an upper level undergraduate class or as a foundation text coupled with a current literature for a basic virology course for graduate students."

Nancy D.Hanson, PhD(Creighton University)
