Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue’s main focus is enteric and respiratory viruses which cause severe and acute diarrhea and pneumonia in animals and birds, especially in agricultural and veterinary industries. Enteric and respiratory viruses include mainly coronaviruses, rotaviruses, caliciviruses, adenoviruses, herpesviruses, pestiviruses, paramyxoviruses, and orthomyxoviruses. Diarrhea and pneumonia lead to the deterioration of health, insufficient body weight gain, and the death of young animals and birds, resulting in huge economic losses. However, the available information is still limited regarding enteric and respiratory viruses in animals and birds, and hence, there are few effective strategies for the control and prevention of enteric and respiratory viruses, despite their significant economic impact. Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes all types of manuscripts (e.g., reviews, research articles, and short communications), including novel findings with respect to diagnostic approaches, experimental techniques, molecular epidemiology, pathogenicity, host–virus interactions, and the treatment and control methodology of enteric and respiratory viruses.

Dr. Tohru Suzuki
