    One thought on “Retroviruses”

    1. I'm a non-specialist, but was looking for something a little beyond the basics. This was a bit more than I bargained for. I chose it because it had a chapter on endogenous retroviruses and the other titles that caught my eye seemed to focus overly on HIV. Nevertheless it fit my purposes well enough, though I should have boned up a bit more on organic chemistry and mircrobiology before tackling this. Fortunately, was there to help me decipher some of the unfamiliar terms.
