The diagrams cover vertebrate, invertebrate, plant, bacterial, fungal, and protozoal viruses, viroids, and prions. They offer a dynamic illustration of the time course of viral life cycles not available in photographs. They also offer speculative elements that project the possible results of future research, as well as historical documentation that shows the development of virology. This valuable reference book for virologists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, geneticists, and students in these areas is the first atlas to compile illustrations of viral morphogenesis in one complete source.Three major mechanisms are involved: (i) translocation of the complete viral particle across the cellular cytoplasmic membrane, (ii) endocytosis of the virion into intracellular vacuoles, and (iii) fusion of viral lipid envelopes and the cellular anbsp;...
