      Viruses have ‘studied’ immunology over millions of years of coevolution with their hosts. During this ongoing education they have developed countless mechanisms to escape from the host's immune system. [] These escape strategies have been described as ‘camouflage’ and ‘sabotage’. Using these simple concepts we describe the spectrum of viral escapology [] [abstract]
