FEMS 2017 is on the horizon, and will be bringing together microbiologists from across the globe to showcase the best of microbiology. This is a great event to be at the heart of cutting edge microbiology research.
This issue will showcase a collection of articles published from these participating Member Societies in their respective journals, and is a sneak peak of what to expect at the Congress this July. We hope you enjoy this Virtual Special Issue and join us in celebrating the important role that microorganisms play in our everyday lives.
I’m delighted to be part of such a collaborative network with our Member Societies. We have worked closely with seven of them to give you this joint special issue to show off some of the exciting research that is happening in our network. There couldn’t be a more exciting time for microbiology, and with the Congress just around the corner, I hope you enjoy reading this collection.
