This special issue on “Plant Viruses” will be focusing on the latest development in plant viruses. Plant viruses are viruses that affect and can be pathogenic to higher plants and they are obligate intracellular parasites that do not have the molecular machinery to replicate without a host. Plant viruses are grouped into 73 genera and 49 families. The first plant virus to be discovered was tobacco mosaic virus which cause billions loss in crop yields worldwide each year. Transmission methods of plant viruses include a series of ways such as through sap, insects, nematodes, and so on. As one of the most important research fields of scientific research, plant viruses are of great attractions to researchers.
In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on
exploring plant viruses. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Intracellular parasites
- Tobacco mosaic virus
- Plant viral diseases
- Bacterial symbionts
- Leaf virus
- Seed virus
- Plasmodesmata transmission
Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.
Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Plant Viruses” should be chosen during your submission.
