The Coronavirus pandemic, in conjunction with the recent advances in technology, boosted virus research in Greece, as worldwide. Existing state-of-the art research on viruses affecting humans, animals, plants and microorganisms joint forces in 2020 with a variety of other biomedical or non-biomedical disciplines as a response to the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic. New technologies and needs in the study of endemic and emerging infectious diseases in Greece have substantially boosted high-quality research into virology. In this Special Issue, we will focus on state-of-the-art virus research in Greece, from virus molecular biology and pathogenesis to antiviral agents and therapy.
