Like other biomedical sciences, medical virology has undergone a revolution of diagnostic and scientific approaches through the advent of molecular biological techniques. This new comprehensive volume presents a synthesis of the best classical and molecular techniques currently used in medical virology. Applications include, the diagnosis of virus infections and the further analysis of virus-specific antibodies and of clinical virus isolates. Contents List: Traditional techniques ofviral diagnosis; Immunoassays; Nucleic acid detection; Blotting of viral proteins; Polymerase chain reaction; Design and testing of antiviral compounds; Molecular epidemiology; Evolutionary analysis of virusesThe same technique has now been adapted to detect herpes simplex virus ( which generally grows much more ... and reliable mab conjugates, particularly for RSV, many laboratories with only a marginal interest in virology are now using it inanbsp;...
