In this comprehensive reference, leading researchers examine the biology, molecular biology, and diseases of the Bunyaviridae, and provide up-to-date information on the genetic characterization and variations of this virus group. Chapters deal with the molecular biology of five genera: Bunyavirus, Hantavirus, Nairovirus, Phlebovirus, and Tospovirus. Chapters examine Bunyaviridae assembly and intracelluar protein transport as well as Bunyaviridae genetics. Contributors discuss the Bunyaviridae diseases, including the hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.

Editorial Reviews

`I found the review of the basic biology of organisms fascinating and the volume difficult to put down! ...serves as an invaluable resource not only for those involved in the study of the Bunyaviridae, but indeed for those other negative stranded RNA viruses such as the Arenaviruses and Orthomyxoviruses.'
