Scope

 

Microbial Genomics is a fully Open Access, open data, peer reviewed journal that publishes high quality, original research on archaea, bacteria, microbial eukaryotes, and viruses. Submissions are welcome from across the breadth of microbiology and should include a genomic approach.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Microbial evolution (including viruses)
  • Population genomics and phylogeography
  • Outbreaks and epidemiological investigations
  • Ecosystems, community and niche interactions
  • Host pathogen, host commensal, host microbiota interactions
  • The microbiome
  • Responses to human interventions (e.g. clinical, agricultural)
  • Metagenomic and whole transcriptome studies
  • Functional genomics
  • New models and computational methods
  • Sequencing tools, algorithms and protocols

Our aim is to publish articles communicating novel insights, exciting new applications or innovative approaches to analysis using genomic data. Publications should aim towards a better understanding of all aspects of microbial genomics ranging from large long- term studies on microbial evolution and epidemiology to studies that have immediate clinical or environmental relevance.

Microbial Genomics is a mandatory open data journal and authors are required to submit supporting data, protocols, and/or bioinformatics programmes, and software to relevant depositories. Article processing charges (APCs) are currently waived until end of 2017.

Microbial Genomics is part of the journal portfolio of the Microbiology Society, a registered charity, which reinvests income from publishing into the development of the journal, for fostering research in microbiology and virology, the organisation of international scientific conferences, or for education and outreach purposes.
