Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Increasing evidence indicate that phage display technology, a powerful molecular tool, has been effectively employed in virus research. Successful examples included HIV, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis c virus, avian influenza virus and coronavirus etc. This special issue will overview achieved results in virus research by utilizing of phage display. Various phage display systems such as T4, T7 or M13 phages and different target proteins such as viral antigens or cellular components can be analyzed or reviewed in the context of virology. It will emphasize, but not limit to diagnostic application and mechanism investigation aspects by identifying potential peptide ligands to viral related targets or virus epitope/mimotope domains. Characterizations of phage displayed peptides such as immunological potential or structural predication are also welcome. Review on applied advances and basic research of phage display in virology field are particularly appreciated.
