All aspects of microbiology, including virology, are covered. Areas of special interest include: physiology, biochemistry and genetics (including molecular biology and 'omic' studies); biotechnology and synthetic biology; pathogenicity (including medical, veterinary and plant pathogens - particularly those relating to food security); environmental microbiology (including ecophysiology, ecogenomics and meta-omic studies); virology; food microbiology (from food production and spoilage to food-borne pathogens); taxonomy and systematics (including publication of novel species and taxonomic reclassifications), and professional development (including education, training, CPD, research assessment frameworks, research metrics, best-practice and history of microbiology).
