Special Issue "Breakthroughs in Viral Replication"
A special issue of Viruses (ISSN 1999-4915).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 September 2018
This Special Issue is related to the conference "Viruses 2018–Breakthroughs in Viral Replication" which will be held at the University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain, 7–9 February, 2018.
Viral infections continue to cause substantial morbidity and mortality in humans and all other living organisms. Wave upon wave of viral pandemics are having a major impact on global health. At the same time, great strides are being made in understanding at the molecular, cellular, organismal and epidemiological level how viruses replicate and induce pathology. This increase in knowledge is being translated into new treatments and vaccines for many viral infections.
Symposium participants, as well as all researchers working in the field, are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Viruses, which will focus on the progress being made in understanding virus replication, structure, transmission, pathogenesis, and antiviral immunity.
