Journal of Virology

The Journal of Virology is an academic journal that covers research concerning viruses, using cross-disciplinary approaches including biochemistry, biophysics, cell and molecular biology, genetics, immunology, morphology, physiology and pathogenesis. Established in 1967, it is published twice monthly by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Like other primary journals from the ASM, research papers are currently available free online four months after print publication. Its 2007 impact factor was 5.332, with a ranking of third of 25 journals in virology. The journal is indexed in Agricola, BIOSIS, Chemical Abstracts, Current Contents, EMBASE, Medline/Index Medicus and Science Citation Index. As of 2007, the Editor-in-Chief is Lynn W.

Researchers pinpoint how Zika virus evades cell's antiviral response

The world knows SARS-CoV-2 intimately now, but there are more than 200 virus species capable of infecting humans and causing disease. And they all want to do the same thing: Invade the host cells, hijack each cell's machinery ...

SARS-CoV-2 following predictable mutational footsteps

New research from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln has shown that the mutations arising in the COVID-19-causing SARS-CoV-2 virus seem to run in the family—or at least the genus of coronaviruses most dangerous to humans.
