Special Issue Information
The new genomic technologies together with bioinformatics have resulted in an unprecedented wealth of sequencing data concerning bacterial pathogens. These data can be exploited to answer important questions related to understanding the evolution of these pathogens and their genomic components. It is also important to use this knowledge to advance and transform the fields of biotechnology and clinical practice. This Special Issue of Microorganisms aims to provide a scientific platform for scientists performing fundamental, applied, and translational research related to bacterial pathogens using genomic data. More specifically, it will include original studies, reviews, and method papers related to the application of sequencing technologies, development and/or application of Bioinformatics methods with a focus on bacterial pathogen:
i) genome evolution,
iii) core/accessory genome analyses,
iv) pathogenicity islands,
v) evolution of gene families related to pathogenicity and antimicrobial resistance,
vi) genomic epidemiology,
vii) genomic forensics,
viii) pathogen detection/characterization.

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 2200 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.
