Read the issue on Physical Virology, the study of the fundamental physical principles underlying the structure and development of viruses, also in relation to viral evolution and epidemics.

The scope of the issue includes:

  -self-assembly and maturation of viral capsids

  -packaging and ejection of the viral genome from the capsid

  -interactions between the viral DNA/RNA and capsid coat proteins

  -virus based nano-composites

  -genomics-based modelling of epidemic outbreaks

  -developments on physical tools and techniques to study virus structure, mechanics and dynamics
