For decades, electron microscopy has been the method of choice for the visualization of viruses. More recently, novel fluorescence imaging approaches, e.g. super-resolution microscopy, image correlation, and single-molecule techniques, combined with innovative labeling strategies and tracking algorithms, have opened new and exciting possibilities to study the dynamics of virus–host cell interactions and provide insights into the architecture of subviral structures in a complex cellular environment.
This Special Issue of Viruses covers recent advances in virology achieved by employing modern fluorescence imaging techniques. We would like to assemble a collection of primary research papers and reviews that focus on insights in the field of virus–cell or virus–host interaction obtained using advanced fluorescence microscopy or spectroscopy approaches. Topics may include virus imaging, single virus tracing or fluorescence analyses, as well as novel labeling strategies or image analysis methods used to elucidate quantitative and dynamic aspects of virus replication and spread.

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. Viruses 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 2000 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.
