Viral Pathogenesis: From Basics to Systems Biology, Third Edition, has been thoroughly updated to cover topical advances in the evolving field of viral pathogenesis, while also providing the requisite classic foundational information for which it is recognized.

The book provides key coverage of the newfound ability to profile molecular events on a system-wide scale, which has led to a deeper understanding of virus-host interactions, host signaling and molecular-interaction networks, and the role of host genetics in determining disease outcome.

In addition, the content has been augmented with short chapters on seminal breakthroughs and profiles of their progenitors, as well as short commentaries on important or controversial issues in the field. Thus, the reader will be given a view of virology research with perspectives on issues such as biomedical ethics, public health policy, and human health. In summary, the third edition will give the student a sense of the exciting new perspectives on viral pathogenesis that have been provided by recent developments in genomics, computation, modeling, and systems biology.

  • Covers all aspects of viral infection, including viral entry, replication, and release, as well as innate and adaptive immunity and viral pathogenesis
  • Provides a fresh perspective on the approaches used to understand how viruses cause disease
  • Features molecular profiling techniques, whole genome sequencing, and innovative computational methods
  • Highlights the use of contemporary approaches and the insights they provide to the field
Dr. Katze is Professor of Microbiology at the University of Washington and Associate Director for Molecular Sciences and Core Staff Scientist at the Washington National Primate Research Center. He has studied virus-host interactions for 35 years and is an international leader in applying systems biology approaches to infectious disease...
