Chief Editors Choice
Recent knowledge on secreted and contact-dependent Pseudomonas peptides and proteins exhibiting antibacterial activity has expanded enormously, warranting a timely update of this aspect of sociomicrobiology for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other Pseudomonas species.
Glycans and lectins cover crucial roles in virus biology and their interplay often shapes the virus-host interaction. This review reflects on glycan-lectin interactions in the context of viral infection and anti-viral immunity, and explores potential targets for antiviral strategies.
New Editor Erh-Min Lai
Erh-Min Lai is an Associate Research Fellow and Associate Professor at the Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology, Academia Sinica, in Taipei, Taiwan. She received her Ph.D. in Plant Pathology at the University of California at Davis and did her postdoc training at the University of Michigan. She has established her own laboratory at Academia Sinica. Her major research interests are the mechanistic and biological insights of the type IV and VI secretion systems in A. tumefaciens. She is also interested in how plants respond to Agrobacterium infection and develops new tools for dissecting the Agrobacterium-mediated transformation process and plant gene functional studies.
