Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I like the overall organization and “directness” in the writing. The chapter outlines that cover the basic features of the virus discussed are quite useful. The illustrations are clear and easy to interpret.”  -Michael Graves, University of Massachusetts – Lowell

“Having each chapter that covers a specific virus written by an expert in the field then having Acheson bring the material into a common style is an excellent approach. I enjoy the slight stylistic differences that I find in the chapters, but Acheson has a direct and concise approach that makes the information throughout the text understandable for students. Chapters are short and direct. The table of contents is informative. Sections within the chapters are logically organized and headings are informative. The boxes provide interesting side topics in an extremely concise manner. Overall, I find Acheson to be an excellent text.” -William Tapprich, University of Nebraska – Omaha

“The conceptual approach to virus biology is the greatest strength of the text. The book has the appropriate level of molecular detail and it is presented in a manner that an undergraduate can readily grasp. It is a highly readable text.” -Sharon Roberts, Auburn University
