PLOS Pathogens is a community-driven and Open Access journal publishing ground-breaking work that significantly advances our understanding of pathogen biology or pathogen-host interactions.
We welcome outstanding original research covering the full breadth of pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, and prions, as well as co-infections and microbial communities in disease. The journal publishes work with a strong emphasis on discovery that informs our understanding of pathogenesis or pathogen biology. Emerging topics and early observations that are of urgent importance or represent a dramatic step forward in understanding are also encouraged. Topics can include, but are not limited to, molecular and cellular host responses to infection, cell biology of infection, pathogen evolution, adaptive and innate immunity to infection, microbiome and pathogen interactions, reservoirs and emerging pathogens, genomics and gene regulation, structural biology, therapeutics and drug resistance, pathogen-associated cancers, and vaccines.
We publish commissioned reviews, opinions, and editorials, and welcome primary research submissions including laboratory and clinical studies. Submissions that report computational analysis or resources along with experimental validation and meet the journal’s criteria for advance, utility, validation, and availability, will also be considered.
