Proceedings of an international symposium in San Francisco, September 1988. The 13 papers consider viruses not only as pathogens, but also as models for research on biological processes in higher organisms and as vehicles for carrying out protective or curative therapies. Topics include new approaches to testing for various viruses, the molecular epidemiology of Epstein-Barr virus, prospects for vaccines, and HIV1/AIDS in terms of statistics of the epidemic and interactions with other viruses. Another 45 papers are represented by one-page abstracts. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
