Special Issue "21st Evergreen International Phage Biology Meeting - Emerging Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2015)
The 21st Evergreen International Phage Biology Meeting is the longest-running general phage meeting in the world. This meeting has been held biennially since 1975, evolving with the growing breadth and depth of the field from focusing primarily on the molecular biology of large lytic coliphages to including phage ecology, (meta)genomics, and applications of phages infecting a wide range of organisms. The meeting is designed to bring together a diverse group of biotechnologists and basic research scientists who are engaged in the science of applying phage biology to current needs in both animal and human health, food safety, biotechnology and other applications.
In the Conference Special Issue published in Viruses, we hope to collect a series of research articles which reflect the current and future trends of both applied and fundamental research within the bacteriophage community.

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 1600 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.
