About the book

An RNA virus is a virus that contains ribonucleic acid called RNA, it plays a crucial role in carrying genetic information from one generation to the next. RNA viruses usually have a single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) but also pose a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). Most the RNA viruses replicate and are assembled in the cytoplasm, but DNA viruses replicate and are assembled in the nucleus of the host cell.

Human infections caused by RNA virus include Hepatitis A, C and E, Nipah virus, Ebola, HIV, polio, measles, Rabies, SARS-CoV2, Dengue Fever, West Nile fever, Zika virus, Influenza, Hantavirus, etc.
This book chapter’s main theme will be focused on transmission dynamics, pathogenesis, mechanisms of host interaction and response, epigenetics and markers, molecular diagnosis, RNA interacting proteins, RNA binding proteins, advanced development of tools for diagnosis, possible development of concepts for vaccines and anti drugs for RNA viruses, immunological mechanisms, treatment, prevention and control.

About the editor

Yogendra Shah

National Zoonoses and Food Hygiene Research Centre

Dr. Yogendra Shah is a consultant microbiologist/virologist, senior research microbiologist, and lecturer at Seti Provincial Hospital, COVID-19 PCR laboratory, National Zoonoses and Food Hygiene Research Center, and Kathmandu College of Science and Technology, Nepal. He obtained a Ph.D. in Veterinary Medicine (Bacteriology) from the Graduate School of Veterinary Medicine, Hokkaido University, Japan, in 2017. His research focuses on better understanding the molecular epidemiological features/transmission dynamics of infectious diseases and zoonotic infectious diseases in Nepal by employing molecular techniques like ELISA, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), and DNA sequencing. He was awarded the Young Science and Technology Award from the Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) in 2019. His research interests include infectious diseases, zoonotic infectious diseases, and vector-borne diseases. He has published more than thirty-five research articles in peer-reviewed journals and twelve books.
