The Ticks and tick-borne diseases section publishes studies looking at all aspects of ticks, including systematics, phylogenetics, taxonomy (including new species descriptions), evolution, ecology, biology, physiology, biochemistry, genomics, proteomics, and control. Studies relating to tick-borne pathogens (e.g., occurrence and prevalence in ticks and vertebrate hosts, coinfections, transmission, pathogen interactions with ticks and vertebrate hosts at the molecular and cellular levels) and tick-borne diseases (e.g., epidemiology, diagnosis, immunology, treatment, prevention and control) in domestic animals, wildlife and humans are also welcome.
