Special Issue Information
The genus Staphylococcus is one of the most abundant bacterial genera in the skin microbiome of mammals and birds. Therefore, the members of Staphylococcus genus play a central role in the health and disease of the host. Some species are observed to colonize a broad range of different hosts, while others are host-specific. Staphylococcus species such as Staphylococcus epidermidis are usually harmless to the host and are considered commensal bacteria, but some strains possess virulence genes and can cause disease. The transfer of genes between species as well as mutations have been reported many times. This results in a great diversity of strains.
The objective of this special issue is to present recent findings in the research of Staphylococcus species to understand the mechanism of bacterial colonisation and infection. Reviews, brief reports, short communication and original research manuscripts on new insights of staphylococcus species will be considered.

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.
