About this Research Topic
The scope of this Research Topic is to compile modern virus diagnostic tools / approaches and to highlight effective innovative virus control measures. By inviting participation from scientists active in human-, animal-, insect-, fungal- and plant-virus research we want to stimulate out of the box thinking and help to identify methods and novel avenues of study, which are transferable between different domains of virus research. We want to identify common strategies for multi-kingdom detection of viruses but also highlight the differences that are preventing these multi-target approaches from being commonly adopted. Additionally, we aim to identify control strategies that might be applicable to a whole range of viruses affecting different organisms. We welcome participation in the form of original research articles, reviews, short communications, and method and protocol papers on all aspects of virus diagnosis and virus control. Cross-kingdom comparative manuscripts on virus diagnosis and control are particularly welcome.
Keywords: virus quantification and identification, multiplexing, nanotechnology, vector control, serological and molecular biological methods, mass spectrometry, next generation sequencing, vaccinology, antiviral chemotherapy, antiviral therapy
