This Special Issue is the continuation of our previous Special Issue, “Molecular Analysis of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria” (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/microorganisms/special_issues/plant_pathogenic_bacteria).
Bacterial taxonomy is currently in a state of flux. As we learn more about bacteria through the application of molecular techniques, the accuracy of taxonomic identification can come into question. What type of analysis will suffice for an identification down to the subspecies level? What techniques are being used to separate species and subspecies within the different plant genera? What are we using to investigate pathogenicity, and is this translating to disease severity in plants? How is the use of molecular techniques helping us to better understand bacterial pathogens? In this Special Issue, we plan to explore the use of molecular techniques to correctly identify bacterial pathogens and pathogenicity.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
