Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book probably includes just about anything one might want to know about papillomaviruses. . The book is written for individuals in the fields of immunology, infectious disease, virology, microbiology, cell biology, and cancer biology and research whether they are scientists, clinicians, or students. . All color figures are grouped together in the center of the book and each chapter is well referenced. . It would be a fine edition to a library collection." (Marion C. Cohen, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
