The International Society for Viruses of Microbes (ISVM) represents large scientific community studying viruses of archaea, bacteria, protists and fungi. One of its activities is a biannual multidisciplinary meeting, which covers the full range of current developments in the field of viruses of microbes, from structural biology to ecology and from fundamental to applied research.
In the Viruses of Microbes Special Issues published in Viruses, we hope to collect series of research articles which will reflect the full diversity of this field with current and future trends of fundamental and applied research.
