Summary
"......viruses exploit genetic variation in their constant interaction with host cells. Remarkable among adaptive strategies, RNA viruses, and probably some DNA viruses, generate complex mutant swarms termed viral quasispecies. The central topics of this volume are the origins of the quasispecies concept and the implications of quasispecies dynamics for viral populations. Some chapters emphasize general concepts (quasispecies, sequence space, fitness, error catastrophe, lethal defection, adaptive resonses, population borrlenecks, etc.) and others the population dynamics of specific viruses such as picornaviruses, pestiviruses, arenaviruses, arboviruses, human immunodeficiency virus, plant viruses and some DNA viruses that display features of RNA genetics, as well as the implications of quasispecies dynamics in vivo. The volume provides an in-depth review of quasispecies and discusses possible avenues for further research
