About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 15 December 2022

RNA viruses accumulate heritable genetic changes during their lifetime, which can arise from adaptations in response to environmental changes or the host's immune response. Because of their short generation times and large population sizes, RNA viruses can evolve rapidly. More recently, various breakthroughs have led to the rapid advance of RNA viruses' evolution. Especially under the devastating global pandemic of SARS-CoV-2, RNA viruses' phylogenetics, epidemiology, and evolution have received unprecedented attention. This research topic will present articles and review papers covering RNA virus evolution including both computational and experimental approaches, and we also welcome any contribution within this cross-disciplinary field. Sub-topics may include (but are not limited to): RNA virus identification, RNA virus evolution, and classification, phylogenetics, epidemiology and surveillance, RNA virus experimental evolution, viral metagenomics and ecology, viral bioinformatics and software.

We welcome original research articles and review papers about the recent advancements and current understanding of RNA viruses' computational and experimental evolution (the list is not exhaustive):

- Virus identification
- Viral diversity and evolution
- Viral metagenomics and ecology
- Viral phylogenetics, epidemiology
- Viral protein modification
- Virus experimental evolution
- Bioinformatics
- Software

Keywords: virus, phylogeny, epidemiology, evolution, bioinformatics


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
