Fields Virology (Knipe, Fields Virology) - No Cost Library

Fields Virology - 6th Edition

   Author(s): David M. Knipe, Peter Howley
Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Year: 2013 


Description:



Fields Virology is the standard reference book for virology, offering systematic documentation of all aspects of virology, including a detailed overview of the virus physiology as well as reproduction and therapeutic aspects of different virus families. The most up-to - date information available is essential with the regular outbreaks of influenza, noroviruses, and other emerging and re-emerging viruses. All chapters have been thoroughly revised for this Sixth Edition; major new focus has been placed on virus discovery and emerging viruses. This Sixth Edition illustrates cancer-related viruses, including the latest human polyomaviruses, and includes latest chapters on circoviruses and mimiviruses. While this edition continues to focus primarily on viruses, it also contains prion information and infectious spongiform encephalopathy. 

FEATURES:

• Set to 2-volume 
• Full color with a minimum of over 1,000 images and several of the chapters provide main figures for use as lecture slides 
• Electronic companion website with entirely searchable text, all relevant references to PubMed and other information not contained in the print to access the content at any time
 • Recent coverage of developing infectious viruses, including those causing HIV infectious inflammation

Book Review:


Over the last decade, there has been such a huge expansion in Study scale and in scope of our interpretation of Molecular virology which has been hard to keep up with Knowledge of new and traditional virus discovered Crimeologists. In Fundamental Virology second edition, Fields and
The colleagues have brought together an extensive list of authorities To help us understand the nuances of the physiology of Viruses. Viruses.


This book contains a series of sections from the 1990 second Virology of the Fields (New York: Raven Press, 1990), a large edition Two-volume range ranging from scientific to basic-science the virological aspects. Fundamental Virology stresses the fundamental Virology science including physicochemical properties, genetics, And the interaction between virus-host cells. Detailed clinical sections on specific virus-induced diseases, antiviral agents or virology diagnostics From this condensed version, were omitted.

The book is composed of two general sections. Part 1 covers Common virology, 15 chapters on taxonomy, nature of the viruses, Genetics, pathogenesis, and virus — the interaction between host cells. Two additions- This section contains tional chapters: an overview of the interferons (synthesis, antiviral function and regulation of cells) and an hyperview Strategy for Vaccine Control (virus immunization).Part two covers specific families of the viruses. Includes 24 chapters and Presents or 2 chapters for every family of viruses, starting with RNA Viruses, and DNA viruses followed. Each chapter comes with a table of Contents and short reference to the specific virus Family accompanied by description, composition, physical details Chemical processes, biology, the process of replication and the effect on the Cell master. Most chapters provide a map of the replication of viruses Cycle. Cycle. 

The chapters are well-referenced and include citations Through 1988. Each chapter contains lots of diagrams, tables and black And-white photomicrographs, all of great quality and clearness. The book is readable and has a comfortable size and weight for Quick point. The index of the subject is quite large and allows easy. The subject matter is available.

This second edition contains several new chapters, including Viral evolution, viral persistence, virus-cell interaction, cell interaction Transformation, human immunodeficiency, retroviral replication-
Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and papillomavirus, And those transmissible agents that cause spongiform encephalopathy. Both these are critical places for scientific development. Even, despite the Recent information expansion on how and how to genomic organization Replicative pathways control animal virus biology, a new one Editing should be required within the next three to four years.

This book is an excellent general reference about the molecular biology of Viruses, well suited for engaged advanced students and researchers In simple virological studies.
