PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION: "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)
