'Microbiome and Cancer’ cross journal collection with Microbiome and BMC Cancer, guest edited by Prof. Christopher Staley, Dr. Jacques Ravel and Dr. Sean Devlin.
High-resolution imaging and genomic technologies are changing the way we view the environment, cells, chromosomes and molecules. Here we share recent highlights from the BMC Series journals.
Aims and scope
BMC Microbiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all microorganisms - bacteria, archaea, algae and fungi, viruses, unicellular parasites and helminths. It considers studies on all aspects of the biology and biochemistry of microorganisms including but not limited to cell biology, genomics, signalling, the interaction of the microbes with the environment and host, mechanistic and functional insights into infection and disease, and biotechnological application in science and industry.

Get credit for your data!
Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.
BMC Microbiology is recruiting new Editorial Board Members
BMC Microbiology is currently participating in a pilot project in which all accepted papers are evaluated for eligibility to receive an Open data badge.
