GlobalResearch The United Kingdom unknowingly admitted that its government has been lying, accusing Russia of allegedly poisoning former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia by the nerve agent Novichok on March 4 in Salisbury. The British government has already made two grave mistakes.
FEMS Microbiology Reviews This journal publishes reviews dealing with all aspects of microbiology that have not been surveyed recently. They should be devoted to topics of current interest and may be of a speculative and selective nature or they may provide comprehensive, critical and authoritative coverage.
Reviews should provide new perspectives and critical, detailed discussions of significant trends in the areas being reviewed. Historical analyses of important subjects will also be accepted. All reviews should address both specialists and the general reader.
Whenever possible, reviews should be put into the framework of general microbiology and biology. Manuscripts of lectures delivered at symposia that do not review the related field are not acceptable, nor are unevaluated compilations of the literature. FEMS Yeast Research The journal has a broad coverage, publishing both fundamental and applied research on conventional and non-conventional yeasts and yeast-like organisms.
The following main research topics are addressed by the journal: Food Microbiology Food Microbiology publishes original research articles, short communications, review papers, letters, news items and book reviews dealing with all aspects of the microbiology of foods.
The editors aim to publish manuscripts of the highest quality which are both relevant and applicable to the broad field covered by the journal.
Studies must be novel, have a clear connection to food microbiology, and be of general interest to the international community of food microbiologists. The editors make every effort to ensure rapid and fair reviews, resulting in timely publication of accepted manuscripts.
Foodborne Pathogens and Disease Foodborne Pathogens and Disease is a peer-reviewed, international journal publishes original articles and short communications on research and diseases caused by foodborne pathogens. The Journal includes timely reviews and special reports on topics such as agroterrorism and the safety of organically grown and genetically modified foods.
Fungal Genetics and Biology Fungal Genetics and Biology, formerly known as Experimental Mycology, publishes experimental investigations of fungi and their traditional allies that relate structure and function to growth, reproduction, morphogenesis, and differentiation.
This journal especially welcomes studies of gene organization and expression and of developmental processes at the cellular, subcellular, and molecular levels. The journal also includes suitable experimental inquiries into fungal cytology, biochemistry, physiology, genetics, and phylogeny.
The journal offers one free color plate per article. Fungal Genetics and Biology publishes basic research conducted by mycologists, cell biologists, biochemists, geneticists, and molecular biologists.
Geomicrobiology Journal Geomicrobiology Journal is a unified vehicle for research and review articles in this rapidly growing field.
Articles deal with microbial transformations of materials composing the earth's crust, including oceans, seas, lakes, bottom sediments, soils, mineral deposits, and rocks, and the geological impact these transformations have to present or have had over geologic time. In this context, the functions of bacteria, yeasts, filamentous fungi, micro-algae, protoists, and related micro-organisms as geomechanical or geochemical agents are examined.
Helicobacter Helicobacter recognises the critical role that has been established for Helicobacter pylori in peptic ulcer, gastric adenocarcinoma, and primary gastric lymphoma. New helicobacter species are now regularly being discovered. By broadening the scope of the Journal to the entire field of helicobacter research, we will increase communication among the various fields such as gastroenterology; microbiology; vaccine development and laboratory animal science.
As new discoveries in molecular biology and clinical trials of new treatment open up a wide range of possibilities for patient care and cure, Helicobacter will be there to report the results.
Infection The journal Infection is a peer-reviewed forum for the presentation and discussion of clinically relevant information on infectious diseases for readers and contributors from all over the world. Articles deal with etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases in outpatient and inpatient setting.
Public health issues of local, regional and international importance related to infectious diseases are covered along with progress and problems in hospital epidemiology. Infection and Immunity Infection and Immunity focuses on host-pathogen interactions and encompasses a wide range of topics of interest to microbiologists, immunologists, epidemiologists, pathologists, and clinicians.
Areas of interest include infections caused by pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and parasites; mechanisms of pathogenicity; interactions of virulence factors with host cells; host resistance, inflammation, and susceptibility to infection; the immunology of infectious diseases; development and evaluation of vaccines against nonviral pathogens; and the genomes of pathogenic bacteria.
The journal welcomes articles dealing with the genetics of hosts, pathogens and vectors in relation to infection and disease manifestation. International Journal for Parasitology The International Journal for Parasitology publishes the results of original research in all aspects of basic and applied parasitology, including all the fields covered by its Specialist Editors, and ranging from parasites and host-parasite relationships of intrinsic biological interest to those of social and economic importance in human and veterinary medicine and agriculture.
Original research includes the development of novel and innovative concepts and ideas, as well as experimental and observational science that raises new hypotheses.
Because of its breadth of discipline coverage, the aims and significance of all contributions should be made clear to readers who are not expert in the particular subject of papers.
In applied parasitology, it will tend to favour contributions of broader significance to the subject rather than narrow, highly specialised applications.
International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents provides comprehensive and up-to-date peer reviewed reference information on the physical, pharmacological, in vitro and clinical properties of individual antimicrobial agents antiviral agents, antiparasitic agents, antibacterial agents, antifungal agents, immunotherapeutic agents, etc.
In addition, the journal signals new trends and developments in the field through highly authoritative review articles on antimicrobial agents, immunomodulators and immunotherapy. Special attention is given to articles providing insight into the problems of antimicrobial resistance, local as well as world-wide, both in the hospital and in the community.
Papers on the underlying mechanisms and on immunomodulating agents are also welcome.Koehn () provides a detailed summary of the factors that are likely to have led to the success of carp in Australia. To summarise, carp possess many of the characteristics of a successful invader. A thorough description of flow cytometry and includes practical and up-to-date information aimed specifically at microbiologists.
Virulence factors should never be considered independently of the host's defenses; the clinical course of a disease often depends on the interaction of virulence factors with the host's response. An infection begins when the balance between bacterial pathogenicity and host resistance is upset.
Prime Factors of Parasitic Virulence The whole complex of pathological effects of the parasite on the host depends on many factors: the type of the parasite, its virulence, population, habitat, developmental biology, and the physiological state of the host.
In most other contexts, especially in animal systems, virulence refers to the degree of damage caused by a microbe to its host. The pathogenicity of an organism - its ability to cause disease - is determined by its virulence factors.
The noun virulence derives from the adjective virulent. Abstract. In the last two decades, the widespread application of genetic and genomic approaches has revealed a bacterial world astonishing in its ubiquity and diversity.
