Advances in Virus Researchby Karl Maramorosch
Synopses & Reviews
Praise for the Series: "This serial... is well known to virologists. It is a valuable aid in maintaining an overview of various facets of the rapidly expanding fields of virology... Timely, informative, and useful to student, teacher, and research scientist."--American Scientist"A mandatory purchase for all types of comprehensive libraries, both public and university, as well as for those interested in or doing research in the field of virology."--Military Medicine Key Features* Among the topics covered are: * Virus-induced immunopathology* Filoviruses* Molecular characterization of pestiviruses* Transactivation of cellular genes by hepatitus B virus proteins* Principles of molecular organization, expression, and evolution of closteroviruses* Primate T lymphotropic oncoretroviruses* Replication of positive-stranded RNA viruses of plants and animals
Published since 1953, Advances in Virus Research covers a diverse range of in-depth reviews providing a valuable overview of the current field of virology. The impact factor for 2006 is 3.48 placing it 7th in the highly competitive category of vir
