Microorganisms is pleased to solicit manuscripts for a Special Issue on “Phototrophic Bacteria”, with Guest Editors Robert Blankenship and Matthew Sattley. The Issue is targeted towards research on all types of phototrophic bacteria, including both anoxygenic and oxygenic forms. Research on these bacteria has greatly advanced our understanding of the basic principles that underlie the light capture and energy storage that takes place in all types of photosynthetic organisms, including both bacterial and eukaryotic forms. We will consider original scientific research articles, comprehensive reviews, comments, commentaries, and perspectives for publication. Topics of interest include microbial physiology, microbial ecology, microbial genetics and genomics, evolutionary microbiology, systems microbiology, agricultural microbiology, microbial biotechnology, and environmental microbiology, all as related to phototrophic bacteria. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.
Prof. Dr. Robert Blankenship
