There are several complex ascomycete fungi genera, such as Fusarium, which are considered to be phytopathogens of agricultural relevance. Controlling fungal infections has become a major challenge for many researchers and institutions around the world, as these infections can lead to the loss of large crops, impacting the production of food and raw materials for industrial use. The economic losses, associated with the new thinking of environmental preservation and unique health in relation to chemical products in disease control, are shifting the focus with great interest to the application of biocontrol methods to control these fungi. Therefore, this Special Issue on the Antifungal Activity of Bacillus Species against Plant Pathogens will cover a wide range of research areas related to antifungal activity, including but not limited to the following:
- Traditional methods used against plant pathogens;
- Endophytic fungi and metabolites against plant pathogens;
- Pharmacological validation and standardized plant derivatives to plant pathogens;
- In silico studies with compounds against plant pathogens;
- Studies of standardized antifungal substances in alternative models;
- Phytochemical studies of antifungals against plant pathogens.
All manuscripts within these themes are very welcome, and those submitted will be carefully processed for publication in Microorganisms.

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.
