Part of the Comprehensive Virology book series (CV, volume 12)


Fungal virology represents a relatively new and interdisciplinary area of science. Viruses and viruslike structures have been recognized in a variety of fungi. The vast majority of these viruses have been shown to possess double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) genomes and to constitute latent or nonsymptomatic infections.
