Abstract:

Since it became possible to obtain sections from infected tissue 30- 50 millimicrons thick, and to study these electron-microscopically, this method has opened to virology a field of application of inestimable value, a field that is characterized by bridging the gap between morphology and macromolecular chemistry. The present compilation is based on a number of selected, typical examples in an ascending order of magnitude, permitting facile demonstration of the advances made during the past years. Emphasis is placed on the group of poxviruses in this report.
