Encyclopedia of Virology, Fourth Edition builds on the solid foundation laid by the previous editions expanding its reach with new timely topics. Its comprehensive coverage of the whole virosphere makes it a unique resource, with content spacing from viruses present in the environment to pathogenic viruses of humans, animals and plants, and viruses of microorganisms. It draws together key areas and concepts concerning virus classification, structure, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Encyclopedia of Virology, Fourth Edition guides the reader through its content with chapters presented at an accessible level, providing a list of further reading for those needing more specific information. With a new editorial lead, this fourth edition is re-organized in 5 volumes spacing from fundamental concepts to applications. Significant updates and new entries focus on research areas that have come to the fore in recent years, such as emerging infectious diseases (Zika virus, Ebola virus, Usutu virus), antiviral therapy (advances in HIV and HCV), bioinformatics and point of care diagnostics, to name a few.

Key Features

  • Offers students and researchers a one-stop shop for information on virology, not easily available elsewhere. The content covers fundamental to applied virology, from prokaryotic viruses to viruses of plants, animals and humans
  • Fills a critical gap of information in a field that has seen significant progress in past years.
