We are delighted to introduce a new Thematic Series for the Letters Incubator on Microbial Symbioses.
This Thematic Series aims to be a comprehensive community resource of original results and reviews on microbial associations and symbioses, showcasing the current developments in symbiotic systems, host-symbiont interactions and symbiont biology.
The guest editors for this Thematic Series are Siv Andersson, who is a professor in molecular evolution at Uppsala University and who was one of the pioneers of the first genome project in Sweden, and Daniel Tamarit, a postdoctoral researcher in molecular evolution who is closely affiliated to Siv Andersson’s research group at Uppsala University.
I very much enjoy being exposed to a variety of novel projects and ideas. The possibility to explore new studies and contribute to their improvement and dissemination seems very promising. Moreover, I am looking forward to gaining a deeper understanding of the details of the publication process.
Daniel Tamarit, Guest Editor
The ability to be a mentor and work with a young researcher on a research theme that is at the core of my research interests… I have greatly enjoyed being one of the pioneers in genomics and bioinformatics in Sweden. Now, I want to pay back the opportunities that others have given me by supporting young researchers and helping them to learn and do great science.
Siv Andersson, Guest Editor
