The mission of Virology is to publish significant findings that impact the specialty of Virology as a whole, and it attempts to go beyond incremental reports focused on a particular virus. This Specialty Section accepts article submissions on major advancements in the understanding of viruses that infect bacteria, archaea, fungi, plants or animals, and strives to cover topics both basic and applied. In particular, we welcome papers that focus on the molecular, cellular or structural biology of virus-host interactions, virus replication/gene expression, bacterial, archaeal, fungal, animal and plant model studies of virus infections, viral populations and evolution, epidemiology, drug/vaccine development against animal viruses and control of plant virus infections.
Using the innovative Frontiers peer review, our major purpose is to accelerate scientific communication and stimulate research activity in the specialty of virology and related areas.
Areas covered: - Virus replication strategies - Virus intracellular movement and transit between cells - Structural biology of viral proteins and genomes - Viral pathogenesis - Innate and acquired immunity against viruses - Evolution and epidemiology of viruses - Emerging viruses - Virus vectors - Antiviral agents - Viroids and subviral pathogens
Quantitative analysis need to be performed on a minimum number of 3 biological replicates in order to enable an assessment of significance. This includes quantitative omics studies (transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics) as well as phenotypic measurements, quantitative assays, and qPCR expression analysis. Studies that do not comply with these replication requirements will not be considered for review.
Studies falling in the categories below will also not be considered for review, unless they are extended to provide meaningful insights into gene/protein function and/or the biology of plants:
-Comparative transcriptomic analyses that report a collection of differentially expressed genes, some validated by qPCR under different conditions or treatments;
-Descriptive studies that merely define gene families using basic phylogenetics and assign cursory functional attributions (e.g. expression profiles, hormone or metabolites levels, promoter analysis, informatic parameters).

ANAEMIA IN PREGNANCY (A CASE STUDY OF PREGNANT WOMEN ATTENDING ANTENATAL CLINIC AT UNIVERISTY OF NIGERIA TEACHING HOSPITAL (UNTH, ENUGU)
ABSTRACTThe study on anaemia in pregnancy is aimed at determining packed cell volume (PCV), Haemoglobin (Hb) level and Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) of pregnant women, as well as the selferity, significance of maternal, age, educational level, occupation and gestational age to the occurrence of anaemia in pregnancy managed, diagnosed and admitted at the university of Nigeria teaching Hospital (UNTH) Enugu. The result showed that most of the patient had moderate to secure anaemia ...

Evaluation Of Current Techniques In Diagnoses Of Human Immune deficiency Virus (HIV)
ABSTRACTA study was carried to ascertain the potency of some techniques used in diagnosis of Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Two hundred and five samples (203) were collected from the patients from the university of Nigerian teaching hospital and was analysed using Elisa kit, which has the ability to detect antibodies and antigens in the patients serum, the Western blots were used as the confirmatory test, to the Elisa test, In case where there is false positive of Elisa test, it is...

FUNGAL INFUSTATION ON BAKERY PRODUCT DREAM
ABSTRACTThis project work which is all about the fungal infestation of bakery product BREAD, explain the kind or type of fungal organisms that are responsible for the spoilage on contamination of bread. The infestation of fungal organism on bread depends on the kind and number of the agent present and upon the environment about them. this statement makes it clear that micro organism infest foods having suitable environment condition for their microbial activity. This project work is cen...

GASTROENTERITIS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILDERN IN ENUGU METROPOLIS (6 â€“ 12 YRS)
ABSTRACTA total of fifty faecal samples were collected form pupils in airport primary school Emene Enugu were used for the study. The duration of the investigation was between February August 2005. These samples were cultured and their causative organisms determined using macconkey agar, deocycholate citrate agar and an alkaline peptone water which was preparect according to manufacturers instructio.The species of organisms isolated include; escherichia coil 8 (29 %) Klebsiella 5 ...

ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF MICROORGANISMS FROM STORED PAP (OGI)
ABSTRACTThe microbial changes which took place during the steeping and storage of pan (ogi) was studied. The steeped water had an initial PH of 6.8 which latter reduced to 4.9 at the end of steeping. The bacterial number for the steeped water ranged from 4.7x104 to 3.2 x 107 cfu/ml while the fungal number ranged from 1.5 x103 to 5.7 x 106 cfu/ml. In the stored pap, pap I had higher count which range from 7.2x104 to 6.0x107 cfu/g while 6.0x107 to 1.6x1011. The fun...
