Porcine Virology


New Content Item

Virology research on infectious diseases in livestock animals is growing, but especially in pig virology. This reflects the increasing importance of emerging viral infections in general and the movement towards pigs becoming one of the leading livestock production sectors in the future.

In this collection published in Porcine Health Management we discuss some important topics in the field such as swine viral disease monitoring and future perspectives on viral vaccines. We welcome submissions to this collection through our online submission system.
