This Special Issue on ‘Advances in Parvovirus Research 2020’ is associated to the conference “XVIII International Parvovirus Workshop”, meant to take place in Rimini, Italy, in June 2021. The international workshops dedicated to parvoviruses, first held in 1985, are events strictly centred on all aspects of parvovirus research and provide excellent opportunities to focus the research topics in this area.
The aim of this Special Issue of Viruses is to offer an opportunity to collect the newest contributions in the field of parvovirus research. Evolution, structural biology, viral replication, virus–host interaction, pathogenesis and immunity, clinical virology of medical and veterinarian relevance, gene therapy, and viral oncotherapy are a selection of the topics that will be addressed during the conference, as well as being of general interest to a wider audience.
Symposium participants, as well as all researchers working in the field, are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or propose reviews to this Special Issue of Viruses. All participants submitting to this special issue will benefit from a 10% discount for publication fee per article.
