Abstract(s)This chapter intends to provide an overview of the use of viruses for medical applications. The first part describes the basic characteristics of viral particles regarding their chemical composition and size, as well as their structure and assembly/disassembly abilities. Next, a discussion about the newest and most important strategies for virus particles modification including genetic, chemical, and self-assembly/encapsulation engineering towards the development of new virus particles for biomedical applications, including targeted delivery and therapy, molecular imaging for disease detection, vaccine development, and bacterial infection control.
