About the collection

Virology Journal is calling for submissions to our Collection on 'Viruses across borders.'

This collection aims to explore the global dynamics of viral infections, emphasizing their cross-border transmission, impact on public health, and implications for global security. We welcome original research, case studies, and reviews that delve into the complexities of viral spread, emergence, and control in an interconnected world. Contributions addressing viral genomics, host-pathogen interactions, outbreak surveillance, and strategies for prevention and containment are encouraged.
