We are proud to work collectively with a growing community of microbiologists whose voluntary contributions are helping to put microbiology firmly on the map. We thank and acknowledge the following volunteers for the great work they have done so far in 2016-2018 in support of various business and science communication projects:
The ALAM Translation Project
A team with the aim of translating abstracts into Spanish and Portuguese for a collection of recent, influential articles published by Latin American authors in our five journals to strengthen collaboration with ALAM (Asociación Latinoamericana de Microbiología a.k.a. Latin American Association of Microbiology) to create cross-continent synergies ahead of the upcoming ALAM Congress (Santiago de Chile, 13-16 Nov. 2018).
Journal Social Media Editors
A team with the aim of keeping our community up to date about the latest articles and collections from the FEMS Journals
Opportunities board team consists of three different taskforce: Events, Jobs, and fighting AMR. They have the aim to search and collect opportunities benificial for the microbiological community and collate them on our Opportunities Board.
One Health is an innovative global-wide approach that aims to tighten the collaboration and communication in all aspects of human, animal and environmental healthcare into one synergistic body: One Health. The goal is to better understand and overcome current and future issues in all areas of healthcare. By doing so, this will advance research strategies and improve our scientific understanding of the complex mechanisms affecting the environment, human and animal health.
The mapping project aims to bring visibility to the microbiology landscape as a whole, and show the parties involved and the extent/ impact to which they are active.
Geobacter bacteria are the only microorganisms known to produce conductive appendages or pili to electronically connect cells to extracellular electron acceptors such as iron oxide minerals and uranium. What mechanisms allow their biofilms to generate electrical currents and participate in metal redox transformations?
