Genetics of Togaviruses

  • Elmer R. Pfefferkorn
Part of the Comprehensive Virology book series (CV, volume 9)

Abstract

Genetic analysis of togaviruses is unlikely to make any substantial new contribution to our understanding of the discipline of genetics. Rather, it should provide a fuller understanding of the structure, replication, and pathogenesis of these viruses. A brief review of the structure and biochemistry of togaviruses may be useful as a background against which both the progress and the unresolved problems of togavirus genetics can be viewed. An earlier volume in this series presents a more comprehensive survey (Pfefferkorn and Shapiro, 1974).
