Sociovirology: Conflict, Cooperation, and Communication among Viruses.
Díaz-Muñoz SL., Sanjuán R., West S.

Social evolution theory offers a conceptual framework for how virus-virus interactions, ranging from conflict to cooperation, have evolved. A critical examination of these interactions could expand our understanding of viruses and be exploited for epidemiological and medical interventions.
