About the Book: Virusphere

A fascinating and long overdue examination of viruses from what they are and what they do, to the vital role they have played in human history. What are viruses?

Along the way, readers will learn about the behaviours and ultimate goals of viruses, gaining a deeper understanding of their importance in relation to the origins and the evolution of life, as well as they ways viruses have changed us at the most intimate level, to help make us quintessentially human..
