Microbiology reaches to the foundations of Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Pathology and Infection Biology. Countless fundamental insights into molecular processes in microorganisms have advanced our understanding of basic mechanisms of life: from the discovery of mRNA via the characterization of restriction enzymes to the most recent translation of molecular mechanisms of bacterial immunity into an elegant and efficient gene editing system in Eukaryotes. Thus, basic research in Microbiology holds promise for swiflty translating mechanistic insight into medical application.

On the occasion of the 2017 FEMS Congress we have put together a collection of select Research Letters and Review articles that were recently published in FEBS Letters and relate to several aspects of Microbiological Research. We have classified the articles based on the topics of some FEMS Congress sessions, including bacterial persistence and toxin-antitoxins; cell-cell communication, signalling and quorum; chemotaxis; genome stability; microbial metabolism; virology; and yeasts in action.

Your work too might be well suited to our Microbiology collection! Every study reporting novel molecular insights within the ever-growing Microbiology field is highly welcome to be considered for publication in FEBS Letters. We look forward to handling your submission through a fair, fast and thorough process.
