Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology

Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology is a specialty journal of the "Frontiers in" journal series.

It stems from the tremendous success of the original Specialty Section of the same name of Frontiers in Microbiology. The new Specialty Journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology will keep publishing major and in-depth research findings focused on host-microbe interactions that decipher these interactions from a molecular, biochemical, cell biological or immunological perspective. In addition, molecular bases of microbial pathogenic evolution and adaptation to the host will be considered. Studies should advance our knowledge of the field and the mechanisms involved in host-microbe interaction. Understanding mechanisms of host-microbe interactions shall eventually contribute to the development of new therapies and vaccines.

Studies must focus on microbes involved in intimate modulation/exploitation of host cell processes and immune responses. The microbes include pathogenic bacteria, pathogenic parasites, resident microbiota or endosymbionts. Studies on pathogenic viruses and fungi may also be submitted to the respective Specialty Sections of Frontiers in Microbiology related to these areas of studies. The eukaryotic hosts involved can be vertebrate or invertebrate animals, plants or unicellular. One of our major purposes is to accelerate scientific communication of high quality research findings, with worldwide open and free access to these findings. Our approach will stimulate research activity and advance scientific knowledge in this field and related ones throughout the world.
