about this item

Drawing on nearly 20 years of teaching, this third edition uses an interdisciplinary approach by covering the historical perspectives along with the molecular biology of virus structure and replication, pathobiology (the observed nature of disease, its causes, processes, development, and consequences), and epidemiological impact of viral diseases on local and global populations. The book provides examples of worldwide epidemics caused by viruses. It includes new information about the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and information on the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil. Each chapter opens with a case study and set of learning objectives. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
