We are honoured to act as Guest Editors for a Special Issue dedicated to mycoviruses, to be published in Journal of Fungi. Mycovirus infection may manifest itself via phenotypic effects on the fungal host, influencing among other traits morphology, growth, sporulation, metabolism, toxin production, pathogenicity, virulence, susceptibility to antifungals and interactions with biotic and abiotic factors. The molecular mechanisms underpinning these phenotypes are not always well characterised. Additionally, we believe that the full range of potential mycovirus-mediated phenotypes is yet to be revealed. We would like to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue by submitting your recent work for publication, as an original research article, a short communication or a review. Investigations on mycovirus-mediated phenotypes, mycovirus–fungal host interactions and the role of RNA silencing in infection are most welcome. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

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. Journal of Fungi 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.
