Description

A comprehensive overview of viral structures. Focusing on the structural biology of viruses, researchers emphasize the conceptual and mechanistic principles of virus functions. The authors of each chapter outline the current knowledge base with specific attention to the as yet unsolved questions of the biological functions of viruses. A 16-page colour section is included.show more
