Overview



Aims and Scope


Microbial Biotechnology publishes papers of original research reporting significant advances in any aspect of microbial applications, including, but not limited to biotechnologies related to:

  • Green chemistry

  • Primary metabolites

  • Food, beverages and supplements

  • Secondary metabolites and natural products

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Diagnostics

  • Agriculture

  • Bioenergy

  • Biomining, including oil recovery and processing

  • Bioremediation

  • Biopolymers, biomaterials

  • Bionanotechnology

  • Biosurfactants and bioemulsifiers

  • Compatible solutes and bioprotectants

  • Biosensors, monitoring systems, quantitative microbial risk assessment

  • Technology development

  • Protein engineering

  • Functional genomics

  • Metabolic engineering

  • Metabolic design

  • Systems analysis, modelling

  • Process engineering

  • Biologically-based analytical methods

  • Microbially-based strategies in public health

  • Microbially-based strategies to influence global processes

It will be a sister of the premier microbiology journals Molecular Microbiology, Environmental Microbiology and Cellular Microbiology.

The types of articles to be published are:

  • Research Articles

  • Brief Reports

  • Rapid Communications

  • Reviews

  • Minireviews

  • Genomics Update

  • Netwatch

  • Editorials

  • Correspondence

In addition, other items relating to the journal content and biotechnological applicability will be regularly featured.

Special Issues

Each year, one or two issues will be Special Issues devoted to particularly topical subjects, and edited by expert guest editors.
