Emerging and re-emerging viruses in the modern world
Cartoon images of (re-)emerging viruses - influenza virus (upper left), SARS-CoV (lower Left), and Ebola virus (right). In this special issue we present a collection of updated research reports covering many aspects of emerging viral diseases, including diagnostics, therapeutics development, vaccine strategy, and virus-host interactions. These reports provide a comprehensive summary of our current understanding of these pathogens and how we can combat their spread.
