The 'Viral Diversification and Evolution' section addresses fundamental and applied aspects of viral diversity, ecology, and evolution. Viral evolution at different timescales is considered, from intra-host diversification and evolutionary epidemiology to long-term virus evolution. Research areas covered by this section include but are not restricted to:
• Viral phylogenetics, phylodynamics, and evolutionary epidemiology
• Experimental, directed, and applied evolution
• Viral population genetics, theory, and modeling
• Long-term virus evolution and paleovirology
• Virus discovery, metagenomics, and the evolutionary ecology of virus-host interactions
We accept research performed with any type of virus, including animal/human, plant, fungal, bacterial, and archaeal viruses, as well as viroids and other subviral agents. The section focuses mainly on understanding the causes and implications of viral diversity and evolution. As such, purely descriptive and taxonomic studies are not encouraged. Original research articles, reviews, and comments are all welcome.
