Viral genomes, Viruses -- Evolution, Viruses -- Ecology, Genetic recombination
Recombination between and within virus genomes is being increasingly recognized as a major driver of virus evolution. Virus evolution can lead to changes in virus pathogenesis and virus ecology. The ubiquity of high-throughput sequencing of multiple virus isolates has revolutionized data acquisition, thus the editors of Viruses decided that a Special Issue on viral recombination was appropriate.
