Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is the continuation of our previous special issue “Microbiome in Ecosystem” and “Microbiome in Ecosystem 2.0”.

The microbiome consists of complex microbes and related molecules. Recently, the microbiome has been applied to various fields in order to develop a novel way for maintaining homeostasis or the balance of ecosystems. The understanding of the microbiome’s interaction with its habitats including its host is still limited. This Special Issue is devoted to publishing original research and review articles on various aspects of the microbiome in ecosystems. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, novel methods for understanding the microbiome, the role of the microbiome in ecosystems, microbe–microbe interactions in the microbiome, microbe–host interactions, and microbe–environment interactions in various ecosystems.

Dr. Bong-Soo Kim
Guest Editor
