Structural Virology covers topics ranging from a discussion of the methodologies utilized in structural virology to the role of virus capsid structures in determining the host cell infection and therapeutic strategies, including the design of antiviral drugs and the development of viral capsids as vehicles for foreign gene delivery. With contributions from experts in the field of structural biology and virology, this exceptional monograph will appeal to biomedical scientists involved in basic and /or applied research on viruses. It also provides up-to-date reference material for students entering the field of structural virology as well as scientists already familiar with the area.
