Symposium: Ecological Implications of the recent huge increase in insect virus discovery
call closes when slots are filled
High throughput sequencing has accelerated virus discovery (Paez-Espino et al. 2016) and notably in insects (Webster et al. 2015; Shi et al. 2016). Many new insect species are now associated with a diverse range of viruses, many of which were previously unknown and belong to undescribed viral families. Each new discovery adds new potential interactions in the ecological network of any focal hosts at multiple trophic levels. This calls for rethinking our understanding of host-pathogen interactions in a broader ecological and evolutionary context at the cellular, organismal, community level.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
