    Acidophiles

    Life in Extremely Acidic Environments

    Edited by: Raquel Quatrini, D. Barrie Johnson

    Acidophiles are life-forms that grow preferentially in natural or man-made environments where the pH is well below seven. Together with other categories of extremophiles, they have greatly expanded our knowledge of the diversity of life, our understanding on...

    Alphaviruses

    Current Biology

    Edited by: Suresh Mahalingam, Lara J. Herrero, Belinda L. Herring

    Alphaviruses comprise a fascinating group of small, enveloped, single-stranded, positive-sense, RNA viruses. They are usually transmitted by arthropod vectors (usually mosquitoes). Of the thirty known species, eight are important human pathogens (e.g. Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus), while...
