Viral proteins are proteins that are encoded in the genome of viruses. Understanding the conformation and dynamics of viral proteins that contribute to receptor-mediated virus cell entry and virus replication is of vital interest to the development of mRNA-based vaccines and antiviral drugs. In recent years, a host of information on these proteins became available through biophysical techniques, such as electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography, and NMR spectroscopy, as well as computational approaches involving molecular dynamics calculations and protein-docking procedures.
This Special Issue of Biomedicines focuses on advanced studies of conformational dynamics of nonstructural viral proteins, in particular those that are involved in molecular interactions, leading to cell entry and the replication of RNA and DNA viruses. The goal is to stimulate basic and applied research in this exciting field with the hope of developing strategies for the prevention of virus-mediated diseases, improve treatment outcomes, and eventually cure infected patients or at least help their recovery.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
