Scope and Importance
The discoveries made in the field of virology in the past century have been simply astounding. It is no wonder to say that virologists have played a key part in the biological revolutions of the last century.
With the rapid technological advancements, we are able to keep a check on many deadly viral diseases. Eradicating Smallpox through vaccination completely from the world is perhaps one of the greatest achievements of Mankind. Many acute infections like Measles poliomyelitis, rabies, and yellow fever are rarely seen in the developed world. However, we are facing newer challenges each day with the discovering of more deadly viruses like Ebola.
One can certainly say that virology in the 21st century will continue to thrive. No branch of science can prosper without the help from other disciplines likewise the main driving forces for the branch of Virology are public health, information processing, technological developments and, personal curiosity, perhaps, more importantly, sharing of knowledge and imagination plays a major role.
Virology Asia 2020 serves as a global platform that brings all eminent research professionals like Virologists, Microbiologists, Biotechnologists, Business dignitaries to discuss and share the knowledge in virology like the new challenges faced, Viral replication, cell structure, biochemical aspects of viruses. This is a place where your research work, ideologies can reach the largest number of audience.
The current developments in virology with the help of Biotechnology, genetic engineering, enzyme mapping, genome sequencing, recent diagnostic techniques and, the antiviral drugs developed each day are the authentication marks of this conference.
Track 1: Viruses and Classification
The classification of viruses is mainly dependent on their morphological, biochemical characters and mode of replication. Some viruses have helical structures while the others are Spherical, some have DNA as genetic material while others have RNA this variety in genetic material demand for different replication strategies.
Track 2: Viral Biochemistry
A virus is an infectious, parasitic agent which will solely replicate within different host cells. A fully replicated virus is called virion and it contains two main components, nucleic acid and a protein coat which is capsid. The proteins of the capsid are encoded by the viral genome. The capsid protects the genetic material and helps the virus to attach to the surface of the specific target receptor of the host.
Track 3: Molecular virology
On a molecular level, the study of viruses is known as Molecular Virology. Viruses have large biological diversity as it successfully infects and parasitizes plants animals and microorganisms. They can effectively contaminate and parasitize a wide range of life structures from microorganisms to plants and animals and therefore viruses have more biological diversities than bacterial, plant, and creature kingdoms combined. Studying these differences is the key to a better understanding of how infections interact with their hosts, duplicate inside them, and cause diseases.
Track 4: Neuro virology
Neuro Virology mainly focuses on the viruses which infect the nervous system and to trace the neuroanatomical pathway by using viruses for gene therapy and to eliminate the harmful populations of neural cells. Viruses infect the Nervous system because Neurons lack molecules which are necessary to present viral cells on the surface to killer cell and provides a safe house for the viruses to replicate. Viruses can persist for the host’s lifetime if once it gets into the host's neuron.
Track 5: Respiratory Viral Infections
Recently one of the most common viral infections are the respiratory tract infections. Respiratory tract infections are including with the infection of sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. The respiratory tract infections (RTI) are generally classified in tow subdivisions as Upper Respiratory tract infections (URTI) and Lower Respiratory tract infections (LRTI). The viruses which are associated with respiratory disorders these are adenovirus, Para influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, coronavirus, Coxsackie virus, human metapneumovirus.
Track 6: Viruses and Tumours
Infections that are prepared to do specifically or in a roundabout way actuating tumor arrangement. Coordinate tumor development may come about because of vaccination of living cells with tumorigenic infections. Tumor development may come because of the impact of the infection on typical cells that are changed into cells. Viruses play a role in the development of cancer due to genetic changes. The viruses and cancer are known as tumor viruses or oncogenic viruses. The frequency of human cancer can be reduced vaccinating against the viruses or therapeutically by testing the infections.
Track 7: Oncolytic Virology
An oncolytic virology is the study of virus that infects and kills cancer cells. They release new infectious virus particles or virions to help destroy a remaining tumor as the infected cancer cells are destroyed by oncolysis.
Track 8 Plant and Agricultural Virology
Agriculture and Plant virology deals with the cyclic development of viral diseases within plant. Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is a positive-sense single stranded RNA virus that infects a wide range of plants, especially tobacco and other members of the family Solanaceae. Transgenic plants are genetically modified using recombinant DNA technique to create plants with new characteristics. Cucumber mosaic virus are the plant pathogenic virus that occurs in cucumber and tomato plants.
Track 9: Veterinary Virology
Veterinary virology is the branch of veterinary medicine. It is the study of viruses effecting animals is be they are wild or tamed animals. Research in virology and veterinary virology studies the pathogenicity, diagnostic, identification, epidemiology and immune responses to a range of viral pathogens. For example Japanese Encephalitis virus, HIV, respiratory syncytial virus. Pestivirus infect only mammals, including members of the family Bovidae (cattle, sheep and goats) and the family Suidae (species of swine).
Techniques used include diagnostic identification methods, flow cytometry, ELISA, epidemiology, PCR and transcriptomic and genomic technologies, including metagenomics, resequencing and genotyping cell separation, proteomics, and infection models.
Track 10: Fungal Virology
Fungi are everywhere. There are approximately 1.5 million different species of fungi on Earth, but only about 300 of those are known to make people sick. Fungal diseases are often caused by fungi that are common in the environment. Most fungi are not dangerous, but some types can be harmful to health. viruses that infect fungi are called Mycoviruses .These Mycoviruses generally have double-stranded RNA genomes and isometric particles, but around 30% of these viruses have positive sense and single-stranded RNA genomes, so they are true Mycoviruses that they must have an capability to be transmitted.
The host interaction in insect viruses has contributed greatly to molecular, cell and organismal microbiology. The high yields of virus particles or virus encoded macromolecules, from the infected insects are significant for some genetically operated experimental procedures.
Track 11: Clinical Virology
Diagnosis of any probable viral infection with the help of various tests such as specific, assorted or conventional tests to identify the causative virus comes under clinical virology. Multiple methods are in use for laboratory diagnosis in probing the viral infections, including serology, viral culture, antigen detection, and nucleic acid detection. Most of the methods used to detect any probable viral infection or differentiate among different pathogens. This field provides specific recommendations for diagnostic approach to clinically important viral infections.
Track 12: HIV and other Emerging Viruses
The human immunodeficiency virus is Lenti viruses that cause HIV infection and AIDS.HIV diagnosis is done by testing your blood or saliva for antibodies to the virus. HIV/AIDS, clinical trials are research studies done to have a better approach, distinguish, to treat HIV/AIDS. Clinical trials are the predominant way to determine if new medical approaches to HIV/AIDS are safe and effective in people.
Track 13: Microbiology
It is the fundamental branch of science that deals with all kinds of Microorganisms. Pure Microbiology provides a broad platform of a large plethora of research and plenty of new insights into different areas of Microbiology. Different branches of Microbiology include mycology, Virology, Immunology, infectious diseases, bacteriology, nematology, parasitology, etc., the antibiotics are the agents used against pathogenic bacteria, either orally or paternally.
Track 14: Bacterial Infections
Bacterial and viral infections have many things in common. Both types of infections are caused by microbes -- bacteria and viruses, respectively and spread by things such as Coughing and sneezing, Contact with infected people, Contact with contaminated surfaces, food, and water, Contact with infected creatures, including pets, livestock, and insects such as fleas and ticks.
Track 15: Parasitic infections
A parasitic disease, also known as parasitosis, is an infectious disease caused or transmitted by a parasite. Many parasites do not cause diseases. Parasitic diseases can affect practically all living organisms, including plants and mammals. The study of parasitic diseases is called parasitology.
Some parasites like Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium spp. can cause disease directly, but other organisms can cause disease by the toxins that they produce.
Track 16: Viral Vaccines
Vaccines have been among the most effective health approach for protecting the individual against viral disease, with two of worlds successful vaccine being against small pox and poliovirus. A viral vaccine is a combination of inactivated viruses and activated viruses. Inactivated or killed viral vaccines contain viruses, they do not have ability to replicate and to bring about a response it contains an antigen. Activated or live vaccines contain the live form of the virus. Currently, Virus like particles organizes a new vaccine concept. Such particles consist of self-assembled structural proteins from the virus which can elicit an immune response but as they lack the genetic material from the virus are safer vaccines.
Track 17: Development of Antivirals
Recently many researches and experiments are going on antiviral agents and their developed to act against the viruses and to prevent viral diseases. Naturally most of the antivirals are used for specific viral infections, where a broad-spectrum antiviral is effective against a wide range of viruses. Some antibiotics, antiviral drugs do not destroy their target pathogen instead they inhibit their development. Sometime antiviral drugs may be toxic to human cells and viruses can also develop resistance to antiviral drugs. Some other antiviral drugs strengthen the immune response to the viral infection.
Track 18: Current Focus in Virology Research
Current research in virology includes the investigation of mechanism of HIV replication and pathogenesis .Diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and HIV-1-associated dementia. Other research involves chronic and latent infections caused by viruses such as Epstein-Barr and Kaposi's sarcoma associated herpes virus and herpes simplex and the retrovirus. Scientists are also studying viral host interactions along with the mechanism of viral induced cellular transformation.
