The ability to combine nucleic acid hybridisation or immunospecific reactions with structural and ultrastructural analysis of virus-infected tissues has provided the opportunity to resolve the spatial details of infection with respect to the production of virus-specific products and the nature of the host response. These technologies may seem lengthy and complex but offer high rewards in terms of revealing the details of host-virus interactions not otherwise accessible.
