Interests: virus dynamics; HIV evolution and epidemiology
HIV is the youngest of the major human pathogens, yet it has become the leading infectious cause of death worldwide. Thirty years of intensive research have revealed a highly complex disease dynamics, calling for quantitative approaches to interpret the experimental data and to aid the understanding of the underlying processes that govern the dynamics and progression of the disease. This Special Issue of Viruses is open to both empirical and mathematical/modelling papers addressing HIV/SIV dynamics in a broad sense (including within-host, cellular and population level dynamics).
The second focus topic is the evolution of HIV: its origins and historical evolution, its current evolution within the host and at the population level, co-evolution of virus and host, molecular evolution and the evolution of phenotypic traits (e.g. virulence, replication capacity or drug resistance). The Special Issue is open to both phylogenetic and bioinformatics analyses, and to theoretical/modelling approaches to the evolution of HIV and SIV viruses.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Viruses is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
