Special Issue "Protein and Nucleic Acid Modifications in Response to Virus Infection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2022.
Viruses utilise and exploit the host cell machinery to multiply. The inter- and intra-molecular interactions which play a critical role in virus–host interactions are known to be influenced by the complexity of the host proteome and transcriptome. Nevertheless, the layers of such complexity continue to unravel with the invention and application of new technologies. One of the phenomena which impacts this complexity is the reversible and irreversible modifications of both host and viral proteins as well as nucleic acids during infection. A plethora of such modifications, e.g., phosphorylation, glycosylation, acylation, methylation, and acetylation, etc., is known; many of them are dynamic and occur or change in response to virus infection. Many of these modifications have been known for some time, whereas many have been discovered recently. Nevertheless, the magnitude of these modifications in response to virus infection continues to unravel and is detrimental for comprehensive understanding of virus–host interactions. This Special Issue of Viruses invites articles reporting the latest research developments in this discipline of virology research.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Viruses is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
