Welcome to AVW9
We invite you to participate in the 9th International Aquatic Virus Workshop (AVW9) to be hosted and held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, June 17-21, 2018. The Workshop provides a forum for the discussion of viruses infecting microbes and protists of aquatic systems in all parts of the planet. Our intention is to promote discussion and collaboration among the world’s leading scientists in many dimensions of virology, including virus discovery and characterization, as well as the role of viruses in aquatic ecosystems functioning. The AVW9 will honor one of the founding members, James L. Van Etten of the University of Nebraska, for his significant contributions to algal virology.
