Editorial Reviews

"...if you are a molecular biologist, clinician, or epidemiologist involved in work with animal viruses, a graduate student, a senior faculty member who is overly specialized, a journalist, or a layman...this book is highly recommended."-Charles Calisher for CDC (JUNE 2002)"With the field of virology moving so rapidly, a new edition of A Dictionary of Virology is more than welcome. ...the Dictionary is a handy reference text for all that study, or are interested in, viruses whether they be undergraduates, postgraduates or experienced researchers. It will be of use to all those interested in the biological, as well as the more clinical aspects of virology. It represents a wealth of information not only on viruses but also techniques, cell lines and reagents used for studying viruses. ...I cannot recommend this book more highly."-Christopher Ring, GlaxoSmithKline, in VIRUS RESEARCH (2002)"...helpful source book for all vertebrate virologists. ...This book clearly took a great deal of research to put together and should be on every virologist's shelf."-Ronald B. Luftig, LSU Health Sciences Center, in ASM NEWS (2002)
