Virus Culture: A Practical Approach provides a broad treatment of the principles and practice of virus culture and will be of interest to all those, whether in academic, industrial, or clinical research, involved in virus culture. The first chapter is an overview of cell culture techniquesessential for virologists. Other techniques then covered are isolating, identifying, concentrating, and purifying viruses. Electron Microscopy as applied to virology is also explained. Chapter 6 is about creating virus vaccines and chapters 7 and 8 cover antiserum production, monoclonal antibodiesand antiviral drug testing. The final chapter describes the methods used to study plant viruses.

Editorial Reviews

"Not the next stage in learning how to deal with people from a different culture, but a guide to growing viruses in order to conduct research in virology. Mostly British, with a German and a few South African, scientists detail the procedures for isolating, identifying, concentrating, and purifyingviruses. They also describe electron microscopy as applied to virology, the production of virus vaccines and antiserum, and testing antiviral drugs."--SciTech Book News
