Dear Colleague,

On September 30th, 2005, the Public Library of Science (PLoS), publishers of the highly cited journal PLoS Biology, launched PLoS Pathogens to the critical acclaim of scientists around the world.

PLoS was established in 2000 by scientists and physicians to make peer-reviewed research freely accessible online to the world. Anyone with an internet connection can download everything that we publish for free.

PLoS Pathogens provides a much-needed single venue for publishing outstanding and rigorous papers in the broad field of pathogen research, including bacteria, fungi, parasites, prions, and viruses. A link to more information on the mission and scope of the journal is provided here.

Until now, researchers wishing to publish their work have had to choose between specialist journals in each separate field. Today, they can choose PLoS Pathogens which unites disciplines in these fast-expanding fields, encouraging cross-fertilization of ideas.

The quality and quantity of the submissions to PLoS Pathogens is already very high. Here are a few highlights of papers that illustrate the breadth and depth of content provided:
