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 basic and applied virology that contribute to the scientific knowledge in, but not limited to, the following groups:

  • Papillomavirus
  • Parvovirus
  • Poxvirus
  • Prions
  • Reoviridae
  • Rotavirus

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.
