Plant Microbe Interactions

Gut Microbiome

The history of human biology has been to look to the host and how it interacts with its environment to explain form and function. We are constantly exploring the interactions of the host’s genome with a variety of environmental factors to explain development and disease trends. 

Polar and Alpine Microbiology
Microbial Systems Ecology
Environmental Microbes

To mark the 14th International Conference on Pseudomonas, FEMS has published a Virtual Thematic Issue across four FEMS journals.
