The Viruses: Viruses of Eucaryotes

This chapter focuses on the characteristics of viruses that infect eucaryotes. Mammalian viruses are emphasized because they are causative agents of many human diseases. Other viruses, such as plant viruses and insect viruses, are also discussed. The chapter concludes with a discussion of infectious agents that are even simpler than viruses, the viroids and prions.
