Cyanobacteria are a group of photosynthetic bacteria able to produce oxygen and living in basically every terrestrial and aquatic habitat. These special bacteria play a key role in the environment and have great potential for biotechnological applications. Read a selection of recent papers from FEMS Microbiology Letters in this collection.

FEMS Journals and Open Access

Embracing an Open Future

All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
