The Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) is governed by a Council of Member Society Representatives (Delegates) and a Board of Directors.
The FEMS Team runs its operations from Delft, The Netherlands. The FEMS Council meets annually with participants consisting of Delegates from all Member Societies, alongside officers of the Board of Directors.
FEMS Microbiology Letters presents a Thematic Issue on Metabolite Transport, showcasing papers which demonstrate the biotechnological applications of transport systems. Covering topics including the bioproduction of organic acids, Aspergillus niger citrate accumulation, glucose transporters, and metabolic engineering, the papers in this collection highlight the important research that is being conducted in this field.
