Reviews

From the reviews:

"An excellent up-to-date compilation of all currently established virus genera." J. Maniloff, Ph.D., Professor, Dept. of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, USA

"Concisely organized in standardized format. Tables on viral history, genus members, nucleotide sequences, protein data, and vaccine strains are invaluable as they cannot been found elsewhere in the literature." H.-W. Ackermann, M.D., Professor, Faculty of Medicine, Laval University, Quebec, Canada

"This volume is a veritable gold mine of information arranged in a most accessible way. As should be the case with good dictionaries, this virus index is difficult to put down. It should be made available in, or at least near, every virus laboratory." (Max Sussman, sfam News, June, 2002)

"This book presents the latest facts about all known viruses in the standardized format of an encyclopedic reference work. For the first time in history over 300 of the world’s leading virologists have worked together to create a highly structured and sophisticated source of information on viruses." (Journal of Investigational Allergology & Clinical Immunology, Vol. 12 (3), 2002)
