Special Issue "Mycoviruses"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
I am honoured to have been approached to act as the Guest Editor for a Special Issue dedicated to mycoviruses. My interest in viruses stems from their unique nature at the interface between living and non-living entities. The often underappreciated and overlooked mycoviruses in particular offered me the opportunity to discover novel types and explore unusual interactions in settings of medical, ecological and economical importance with potential biotechnological implications. I would like to invite you all to contribute to the Special Issue by submitting your recent works for publication, as an original research article, a short communication or a review. Population studies highlighting the diversity of mycoviruses in organisms and ecosystems, previously undescribed mycovirus families and investigations on mycovirus-host interactions, including but not limited to the role of RNA silencing in mycovirus infections, are most welcome. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely,Dr. Ioly Kotta-Loizou
