About this Research Topic
This Research Topic is focused on the knowledge and recent experience in viral diseases in the Iberian Peninsula geographical area, neighboring countries - due to climate change - and worldwide - given the ease of communications and the globalization of our societies. For research focussed on plant virology, please see the twinned Research Topic in Frontiers in Microbiology.
This Research Topic covers a wide range of topics related to virology in Spain and worldwide that were represented in the XVI Spanish Virology Congress celebrated in Málaga on September 6-9, 2022.
We are preparing selected talks for the XVI SEV Virology Congress in Málaga on September 2022, to be joined in a Special Issue called "Virology Today in Spain” to be published in the journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology
Contributions are expected to be original articles, but some review articles will be also accepted, provided the topic is of general interest.
For participation in the Special Issue, authors should send a tentative title before 31 September 2022. The submission deadline will be on January 3rd, 2023.
