One hundred years have passed since the 1918 H1N1 pandemic, and influenza viruses continue to pose an enormous and unpredictable global public health threat. Recent technological and methodological advances have greatly expanded our understanding of the basic biology of influenza infection, shedding new light on old problems in the influenza field. This special issue will focus on recent discoveries that have emerged from the use of novel approaches to study long-standing questions in influenza biology. Articles in this issue will span molecular and quantitative virology, immunology, evolutionary biology and ecology, transmission and environmental control, mathematical modeling, and novel therapeutics.
