A comprehensive survey of the most recent discoveries in this field. * Provides a platform of knowledge that will lead to the development of more effective methods for controlling the spread of RNA viruses or modifying their disease course. * Synthesizes recent findings in this fast-moving field while also reviewing accepted knowledge. * Focuses on the antiviral signaling pathways in the host, including specific pattern recognition receptors and how these cellular alarms signal the innate immune response. * Examines the ways in which specific major RNA virus families interact with, activate, and elude these signaling pathways and responses.
