Special Issue "Epigenetics and Viral infection"
A special issue of Viruses (ISSN 1999-4915).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: epigenetic regulation of herpesviruses infection
It is well known that to support infection, viruses co-opt cellular mechanisms that control transcription. Chromatin composition and chromatin structure are important regulators of gene expression. In the past years, the role of chromatin and chromatin-modifying enzymes has been explored in the context of virus-host interaction demonstrating the importance of viral infection on the host epigenome and the role of epigenetics in controlling viral replication. The goal of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of the most significant advances in the field of epigenetics and viral infection. We expect to receive manuscripts outlining how viruses and their host each attempt to use epigenetics to gain control of the other’s transcription to achieve their own ends.

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.
