Foundations of Virology; 2nd ed.

F.A. Murphy (2022)

This revision has the usual additions and updatings of text and images, but also a new 10 page section on SARS-CoV-2/COVID written by Kay Holmes. It has been revised up to July of 2022, now with 626 pages and still with >2,000 images. As always, this is still a history of virology centered on discoverers and discoveries, inventors and inventions, and developers and technologies, with particular emphasis on the seminal initial discoveries that have become the foundation of today’s science. Now this extends to the ongoing pandemic virus/disease – a section that will need ongoing updating – but we shall worry about this mañana. The book still has a massive table of contents that serves as a rather comprehensive timeline; it is indexed and has a suggested additional reading list. The images are included at the highest resolution possible for online sharing, still best viewed on a large high-res monitor.
