About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 03 January 2023

The Spanish Society for Virology (Sociedad Española de Virología, SEV) aims to promote both basic and applied Virology, and to encourage discussion and collaboration between researchers. Recently, the society has highlighted Virology as a key science in our lives, with an obvious impact on health, economy and society. But in these post-pandemic times, it is important to remember that viruses are everywhere, menacing not only human health but also our livestock and our agricultural crops.
This Research Topic is focused on plant virus research currently done in Spain, a country considered somehow the vegetable garden of Europe, that was presented in the XVI Spanish Virology celebrated in Málaga on September 2022. For research focussed on clinical virology, please see the twinned Research Topic in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology. The congress included a Symposium in honor of the late Dr. Ricardo Flores, a world leading researcher in the field of viroids, a class of subviral agents causing important diseases in many economically important crops. As such, this Research Topic will also be opened to world researchers that had the opportunity to collaborate with Dr. Flores, serving as a tribute to such an inspirational scientist. The editors encourage Original Research, Reviews, Mini-Reviews and Methodology papers on the following (but not limited to) topics:

- Virus/viroids–plant host interactions

- Virus–vector interactions

- Emergent viral and viroids diseases

- Genetic diversity and evolution

- Control strategies

Keywords: Plant Virology, Biocontrol, Viroid, Plant-Virus Interactions, Virus-Vector Interactions


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.
