The Negative-strand RNA viruses section of Virology Journal aims to publish research articles and reviews covering all aspects of segmented and non-segmented negative strand RNA viruses from all eukaryotes. Basic research topics of interest include aspects of the viral life cycle: viral entry, intracellular capsid transport and disassembly, viral gene expression/regulation, protein processing/regulation, viral genome replication, particle assembly and egress as wells as virus-host interactions. Medical research topics of interest include but are not limited to viral pathogenesis, epidemiology, immunology, therapies and emergence of drug-resistant variants. We also welcome basic and translational studies on the development of antiviral drugs and vaccines. Interdisciplinary research on these viruses using multiple approaches is particularly welcome.
