The Viruses, Volume 1: General Virology focuses on physical and chemical approaches to virology, including cellular organization, inactivation of viruses, and plant viruses. The selection first offers information on the problems of virology and the structural and chemical architecture of host cells with special reference to the synthesis of polymers. Discussions focus on cellular organization, patterns of polymer synthesis, problems of polymer duplication, and biochemical mechanisms of enzyme and protein synthesis. The book also takes a look at the physical properties of infective particles and quantitative relationships between virus particles and their functional activity. The publication ponders on the inactivation of viruses; chemical basis of the infectivity of tobacco mosaic virus and other plant viruses; and comparative chemistry of infective virus particles and their functional activity. The book also elaborates on comparative chemistry of infective virus particles and of other virus-specific products and biochemistry of insect viruses. The selection is a dependable source of information for readers interested in virology.
