Influenza Virus Genetics, Viral Adaptation, and Evolution

  • Edwin D. Kilbourne


Influenza virus genetics comprises the genetics of a highly mutable RNA virus and the unusual genetics of a segmented-genome virus capable of genetic interaction with homologous strains. Genetic reassortment occurs in nature and has been used in the laboratory in the fabrication of vaccine and reagent viruses with desirable characteristics.
