  • microbial interactions (pathogenic, mutualistic, environmental),
  • ecology,
  • physiology,
  • genetics and cell biology/development,
  • new methodologies, i.e., new imaging technologies (e.g. video-fluorescence microscopy, modern TEM applications)
  • novel molecular biology methods (e.g. PCR-based gene targeting or cassettes for cloning of GFP constructs).

Types of publication:

Original research papers, short communication, method papers, reviews, mini-reviews.
