Other viruses (e.g. pox, papilloma, parvo, reoviridae)

Section Editor: Erna Geessien Kroon, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil
Deputy Section Editor: Marco Antônio Campos, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, Brazil ​​​​​​​

The Other viruses (e.g. pox, papilloma, parvo, reoviridae) section of Virology Journal invites the submission of manuscripts on a wide range of topics in basic and applied virology that contributes to the scientific knowledge. The section welcomes virology research manuscripts which include the discovery, biology of the viruses, genomic characterization, bioinformatic analysis, diagnosis, pathogenesis, immunological response, prevention, treatment and epidemiology of the viruses, use of the viruses as vectors, as well as pre-clinical and clinical studies. The section will feature research on viruses of all species.
