Human Virology is made up of three parts. Part 1 looks at general principles in virology, including viral replication and genetics, how viruses cause disease, and epidemiology. Part 2 is about specific viruses, including positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses such as coronaviruses and astroviruses, negative-sense single-stranded RNA viruses such as bunyaviruses and filoviruses, double-stranded RNA viruses, double-stranded DNA viruses, single-stranded DNA viruses, single-stranded positive-sense RNA with an RT, and circular double-stranded DNA viruses with an RT. The final part looks at practical aspects of virology, including the clinical virology laboratory, control of viral disease by immunization, and antiviral chemotherapy.
