Nature Microbiology is a new online-only journal, publishing monthly from January 2016. Nature Microbiology is interested in the best research from across the field of Microbiology.
A remarkable effort from University of Queensland researchers has helped increase the number of known genomes by almost 10 per cent.
Marine microbes play an important role in the productivity and functioning of our oceans but scientists studying their behaviour face many challenges.
Significant headway has been made in controlling malaria. However, two vexing problems remain: currently available treatments are unable to block transmission of the parasite that causes the disease, and the parasite often ...
New insight into sleeping sickness suggests communication between parasites that cause infection could affect the severity and spread of the disease.
UNSW Sydney scientists studying microbes from some of the saltiest lakes in Antarctica have discovered a new way that the microbes can share DNA that could help them grow and survive.
Many complexities of the carbon sequestration process remain poorly understood, despite years of research and the significant impact of this process on global climate.
The bacterial communities that live inside everyone are quite similar and stable when times are good, but when stress enters the equation, those communities can react very differently from person to person.
Microbes dominate the planet, especially the ocean, and help support the entire marine food web. In a recent report published in Nature Microbiology, University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM) oceanography professor Ed DeLong ...
Bacteria come in all shapes and sizes—some are straight as a rod, others twist like a corkscrew. Shape plays an important role in how bacteria infiltrate and attack cells in the body. The helical shape of Helicobacter pylori, ...
Essential microbiological interactions that keep our oceans stable have been fully revealed for the first time, by researchers at the University of Warwick.
