Our projects challenge important issues in microbiology and advocate an open and honest discussion from the microbiology community. Find out how you can get involved, read our latest news, and discover why these issues matter.
Increasing Project Impact – we invite proposals from organizations who seek a wider promotion and increased the impact of their activities, examples are International Microorganism Day with the Portuguese Society of Microbiology, and the #EUROmicroMOOC with the Spanish Society for Microbiology
Peer Review – emphasizes and celebrates the fundamental role that peer review plays in the scholarly communications landscape
One Health – shows the biggest achievements of the One Health concept and how it facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration into actual science and policy
Fighting AMR – helping you find antibiotic solutions to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and address this challenge globally
FEMS Yeast Research is proud to present this latest thematic issue on yeast pathogenesis and drug resistance. In the past few decades, genetics and genomics studies have uncovered traits underlying the pathogenicity and drug resistances of pathogenic yeast. However, we still have a lot to uncover about the complex mechanisms used by different species to thrive in the human host, and much to do to convert this knowledge into improved clinical treatments. This thematic issue highlights the importance of the diversity of genome-scale approaches to unravel the intricate nature of pathogenesis and drug resistance in pathogenic yeasts, bringing together a diverse range of fascinating views on antifungal drug resistance.
