Coronaviruses: A Historical Perspective

  • Chapter

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB,volume 218)

Abstract

Coronaviruses are associated with a wide variety of diseases of man and other animals. The importance of this group of viruses in both medical and economic terms has become increasingly evident since the First International Congress was held in Germany in 1980. The application of modern molecular biology and immunology has contributed to new insights into understanding the biology of the viruses and the pathogenesis of the diseases they produce. The number of investigators has also increased over the past several years as evidenced by this Congress which is thus far the largest ever held.
