Special Issue "Advanced Research on the Tick-Borne Rickettsiae"

Ticks are vectors of many diseases such as Lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and spotted fever caused by Rickettsiae.
Tick-borne diseases are a significant epidemiological problem in many countries worldwide. Recent years have brought the development of molecular and serological diagnostics, meaning new Rickettsiae species have been discovered and sequenced.
For this Special Issue, we seek manuscripts focused on tick-borne diseases caused by Rickettsiae spp. Studies on the application of molecular techniques and the latest serological methods are recommended. We also seek manuscripts describing clinical experiences that may help to develop the process of diagnosis and treatment.
