Special Issue "Next Generation Sequencing: New Developments and Discoveries in Virology"
A special issue of Viruses (ISSN 1999-4915).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2015).
The application of next generation sequencing (NGS) has significantly changed our understanding of biology in recent times. The enormous amount of data output from NGS has propelled the growth of specialist areas, such as bioinformatics, which has ultimately enabled the scientific community to tackle biological questions in a novel way. In this special issue of Viruses, we will focus on new developments and discoveries in virology that have been fuelled by NGS. Whether it is from virus discovery to advancement of bioinformatics through virus-related research, or from diagnostics to paleovirology and virus evolution, this special issue will cover all aspects of NGS-related science in virology.
Several established researchers have already agreed to contribute a manuscript to this special issue of Viruses, and we would cordially invite you to join us by submitting your manuscript to the journal by 30 November 2015. We will also be delighted to answer any pre-submission enquiries to coordinate the layout of this special issue.
