PLOS Pathogens: 10th Anniversary Collection

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch of PLOS Pathogens, over 60 Section Editors, all experts on studies of viruses, bacteria, prions, fungi, oomycetes and parasites of animals and plants, were invited to select articles that they believed represented the very best exemplars from their respective fields.


PLOS Pathogens: Research Matters

PLOS Pathogens presents Research Matters as a means to bridge the gap between academic research and the public. Research Matters provides a forum for active scientists to tell the public how diverse fundamental research into pathogens assures real and compelling impact on public health, human knowledge, and life as well as to develop a collective voice of the pathogens research community.


PLOS Pathogens Pearls

PLOS Pathogens presents an Open Access compendium of "lessons-that-last." This living collection of short, educational, and highly useful articles addresses topics of relevance and importance within the wide-ranging field of pathogens research, with insights tailored to graduate students and post-docs.


Malaria: Targets and Drugs for All Stages

This Collection describes multiple parasite and host processes engaged in infection in blood, the blocking of which could stop human illness, along with the development of drugs against stages responsible for mosquito transmission and those that remain latent in the liver.


Genetically Modified Insect

These articles describe the technical and applied aspects of GM insects. We have also included articles that are not strictly GM, but aim to modify the disease transmission traits of insects through the use of symbiotic microbes.


PLOS Pathogens & PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases Twinning Collection

PLOS Pathogens and PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases sent a collection of primary research articles on topics spanning these sister journals, including: proteomics, kinetoplastids, insect vectors, genomics, and transcriptomics within the context of the NTDs.


Epigenetics 2010

This collection reflects a range of model systems and organisms, and offer phenotypic, mechanistic, and chromatin-based insights.


Genomics of Emerging Infectious Disease

This collection of essays, perspectives, and reviews from six PLOS Journals provides insights into how genomics can revolutionize our understanding of emerging infectious disease.
