In 24 extended and well-illustrated articles, experts describe their research and work in characterizing cellular membrane platforms, intercellular networks and the architecture of cell compartments mediated by the entry and replication of cycles of viruses. Contributors also offer case studies with well-chosen and developed illustrations, microscopy, spectroscopy and scanning probes, covering such topics as human rhinovirus cell entry and uncoating, the role of lipid microdomains in influenza virus multiplication, entry mechanisms of Murine and SARS coronaviruses, hepatitis viruses and the innate host response, virus cell interactions of Hepatitis C viruses structure and dynamics of viral RNA packaging, virus architecture as evidenced by atomic force microscopy, challenges in developing an HIV vaccine, mathematical approaches for stoichiometric quantification in studies of viral assembly and DNA packaging, the structure and assembly of human herpes viruses, astrovirus replication, DNA vaccines against viruses, and life cycles of polyomaviridae in a DNA tumor virus.
