Special Issue in Pathogens: New Insights into Molecular Epidemiology and Diagnostics of Human Pathogens
Diagnostic virology is undergoing a revolution due to technological developments, especially in the area of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). The rapid production of large amounts of sequence data combined with in-depth bioinformatic analyses enable new insights into the identity, abundance, genome organization, and molecular epidemiology of viral agents in clinical samples. We are calling for articles for a Special Issue on “Viral Diagnostics Using Next-Generation Sequencing” that will consist of either original research articles and short-communications on the detection, identification, enrichment, genomic characterization, resistance profiling, and bioinformatic applications related to the diagnostic of viruses; or examine the current state of the field through review articles. We also welcome comparative methodological approaches of wet or dry laboratory aspects of viral diagnostics using NGS, demonstrating the superiority of specific approaches in terms of turnover time, costs, ease of implementation, and biological information generated for applications in the clinical routine setting. We will accept manuscripts starting from February 2019 until the submission deadline.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Genes 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 2600 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.
