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.

Bacterial-Viral Co-infections

FEMS Microbes is excited to present its latest thematic issue, focusing on bacterial-viral co-infections. Host and microbial factors are critically important for influencing the severity and outcome of infection. Interactions between microbes is an understudied yet important aspect to this process.
