MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

After three volumes on adenoviruses in 1995 the past years have seen rapid progress in the field of adenovirus research. Moreover, adenoviruses have attracted considerable interest as vectors in gene transfer regimens.

From the reviews:

"This plentiful and proliferous volume deals with progress in basic research on the molecular biology of adenoviruses. The material is presented in 3 major divisions … . A book of this size has been carefully edited … . In summary this is a valuable volume for the advanced molecular virologist." (Hans J. Eggers, IJMM – International Journal of Medical Microbiology, Vol. 293 (7-8), 2004)
