Special Issue "Viromics: Approaches, Advances, and Applications"
A special issue of Viruses (ISSN 1999-4915).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2019).
Interests: viromics; virus genomics; virus taxonomy; bacteriophages
The field of virology has had a massive boost from the advances made in viral metagenomics (viromics or metaviromics) during the last 15 years. What started in marine environments has branched out to cover terrestrial habitats, extreme environments and the human body. New methodologies are continuously being adapted to these different environments and answering a wide range of research questions. This has led to the development of new applications of viromics beyond the descriptive, such as in the investigation of environmental drivers of community structure, or the use of viromics in pathogen detection and the discovery of new viruses.
For this Special Issue, we welcome submissions in all areas of viromics that cover new approaches, significant advances and applications.
