Special Issue "Biology of Parasitism"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 15411
Parasites are highly diverse and complex organisms which have evolved to successfully infect other eukaryotic hosts. Over centuries they have remained among the most infectious of pathogens affecting the animal kingdom, including humans. Understanding the nature of host–parasite interaction has been paramount to combating parasitic diseases, and has taught us a great deal about eukaryotic biology in all its breadth and diversity. Through this Special Issue of Pathogens, we hope to bring together outstanding researchers to contribute primary research and/or review articles that create a symphony of scientific expeditions into the world of eukaryotic parasite biology. We aim to showcase why parasites are such unique and intriguing creations of nature, and why we should continue to study them.
To attract the interest and intrigue of a wider readership we would like to invite investigators working on any pathogenic parasites (within the broader areas covering their ecology, genetics, genomics, immunology, detection, public health, and vaccine development) to submit their manuscripts in the form of original research articles and reviews.
