Virology has progressed to a phase in which it is dominated by studies on virus genes and their functions. New information on all virus genes ñ animal insect plant and bacterial ñ is being reported. More light is being shed on the organization of the viral genes their protein products and their role in infection and disease. Virus Genes is dedicated to the publication of studies on the structure and function of virus genes providing a forum for the dissemination of data as well as for the analysis of developments in the field. Virus Genes serves as a platform for the publication of experimental and computer studies on genes from all virus genera and families. Furthermore the journal emphasizes evaluations of current developments as well as reviews and correspondence on scientific matters dealing with virus genes. Virus Genes publishes original work on the following subjects: cloning and expression of viral genes from all virus families in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems; studies on the sequence analysis of virus genes; computer programs for gene analysis; virus gene products; regulation of virus gene function; analysis of virus genes and their functions based on sequence analyses; the role of virus genes in disease; antivirals affecting gene function; reviews and comparative aspects of virus genes.
