Successful bacterial pathogens often produce virulence factors interfering with essential pathways of their eukaryotic hosts. Tilley and colleagues have identified a novel virulence factor of the nosocomial pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii which interferes with blood clotting, and importantly, is absent from two type strains, highlighting the importance of investigating multiple isolates.
Thematic Issue - Pseudomonas
Pseudomonas, a truly versatile bacterial genus, is the subject of our latest thematic issue. Kendra Rumbaugh gives an excellent overview of the 12 contributions in her editorial “Genomic complexity and plasticity ensure Pseudomonas success”.
Furthermore, check out the latest Pseudomonas publications from all FEMS journals in this Virtual Issue.
Despite the obvious importance of viruses in medicine, ecology, and agriculture, the study of viral bioaerosols has remained a vastly underexplored area. Prussin II et al. discuss the importance, challenges, and future of studying community structures of viral bioaerosols through the use of metagenomics.
