The last few years have witnessed enormous progress in virology research, with major breakthroughs taking place across a wide range of virology-related disciplines. At the same time, the global impact of viral infections on human health has never been more clear. The conference Viruses 2016 - At the Forefront of Virus-Host Interactions, held in Basel, Switzerland from 26th to 28th of January 2016, brought together leading virologists from around the world to share recent developments in their research. The sessions were organized in a theme-based manner, with related topics discussed from the perspective of diverse viruses, ranging from bacteriophage, plant, and insect viruses to animal viruses.
We are organizing a special issue based on the topics presented and discussed at the Viruses 2016 conference.
Topics will include:
General Topics in Virology
Antiviral Innate Immunity
Interactions Between Viruses and Membranes
We welcome submissions from all meeting participants. These can be reviews, research articles, commentaries, etc.
