Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since 1990, the FASEB Virus Structure and Assembly Conference has been a premier event for presenting and learning about virus research. The conference covers a broad range of bacterial, archaeal, and eukaryotic viruses, bringing together structural biologists, virologists, and microbiologists, promoting interactions, and guiding young researchers to embrace studies on viruses. The broad focus on viruses encourages interdisciplinary approaches and stimulates collaborations, overcoming silos of more topic-focused conferences. The 2024 meeting will be held in Southbridge, MA, covering topics from virus structure to pandemic readiness.

As one of the sponsors, MDPI has offered to dedicate a joint Special Issue (SI) of Viruses and Pathogens to the 2024 FASEB Virus Structure and Assembly Conference. The SI will cover all major conference topics, including virus structure and assembly, archaea/giant viruses, computational virology, emerging viruses, anti-viral therapies, and viral evolution. We encourage attendees of the 2024 FASEB Virus Structure and Assembly to contribute to this SI by submitting original research articles or reviews pertinent to the topics of this conference.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Pathogens.
