We present here our review of highlights in animal virus research for 1987. This follows the format set by its predecessors (McGeoch et al., 1986, 1987a), particularly in that it is a personal and highly selective view of results published in 1987. Molecular virology has again been emphasized, reflecting the interests of the authors.
We start by describing current work on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and on papillomaviruses, two fields of particular urgency and application in modern virology. Topics relating to many viruses are then treated successively under the general categories of classification, growth, genome organization, genome replication, processes of transcription, protein modification and processing, and structural analyses. The account closes with an examination of the uses of oligopeptides as tools in recent research.
