Animal Viruses of Genetic Interest

  • Frank Fenner


Early work on the genetics of animal viruses was reviewed, with extensive references, by Fenner and Sambrook (1964), and work done between 1963 and 1969 by Fenner (1970a). A general account of the biology of animal viruses is available in Fenner (1968) and has been brought up to date in the second edition of that book (Fenner et al., 1974). Names used for viral groups (families and genera) in general follow Wildy (1971).
