This volume provides an overview of host genetic factors that provide complete or partial resistance to infection, that influence the clinical outcome of infection, or that confer the capacity to remain healthy during infection. This book covers the most recent advances in the field and explores how progress in knowing the genetic basis of infectious diseases could lead to new insights in understanding and combating them.FIGURE 9. The lytic and lysogenic cycles of bacteriophage replication. This diagram shows a single type of phage that can enter either the lytic or lysogenic cycles, but there are phages that are only lytic and do not enter the lysogenic cycle.
