Special Issue "Advances in Structural Virology via Cryo-EM"
A special issue of Viruses (ISSN 1999-4915).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 February 2018).
Interests: Cryo-electron microscopy; cryo-electron tomography; correlative imaging; virus structure and assembly; enveloped viruses; bacteriophage; host-pathogen interactions
Recent advances in the technologies associated with cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) have brought forward a 'resolution revolution'. This revolution has been harnessed by the structural virology community and has yielded significant results that have impacted our fundamental understanding of virus structure, virus glycoprotein structure, processes of virus replication, and anti-viral and vaccine development.
This Special Issue of Viruses is dedicated to advances in cryo-EM based structural virology. We would like to assemble a collection of primary research papers and reviews that will highlight developments in the field of structural virology made possible by advances in cryo-EM instrumentation and methods. Topics may include all areas of structural virology, as well as novel cryo-EM strategies, used to determine the structures of viruses and virus–host interactions.

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.
