Special Issue in Viruses: Bioinformatics and Computational Biology of Viruses
Computational approaches have been used to study viruses at all levels of organization: from the molecular processes that occur within infected cells, through the dynamics of populations of virions and cells inside infected hosts, up to the level of epidemics and transmission between hosts. This Special Issue invites submissions that involve computational methods (mathematical or simulation modeling, or data analysis) at any (or, for multiscale models, several) of these levels to gain new insights into the fundamental processes, etiology, spread, and evolution of viral infections.

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 2200 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.
