Interests: molecular diagnostics of viruses; markers of viral infection; viral infections in immunocompromised host; enterovirus; microRNAs in viral infections; viral persistance
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Molecular biology has revolutionized virology in several aspects. Due to the limitations of viral culture, antigen detection, and serology, the molecular detection of viral nucleic acids has become the method of choice for the diagnosis of viral infections in many circumstances. Molecular epidemiology of viruses has led to a better understanding of their phylogenetic relationships, which has led to changes in the taxonomy of several virus families. The recent development of rapid molecular techniques enhances the impact on viral diagnostics for patient management. Next generation sequencing is now entering clinical laboratories to permit the diagnosis of a previously unachieved large spectrum of viruses.
This Special Issue on "Molecular detection and typing of viruses" will include manuscripts on recent advancements in molecular biological techniques in the field of virology. Papers aiming to improve our understanding of epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of viral infections are welcome. Original research and reviews on these and related topics are invited.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diagnostics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
