Journal of Molecular Microbiology

About Journal of Molecular Microbiology

Insight Medical Publishing is accepting CV and resumes from eminent scientist, professors and researchers to join our Editorial and reviewer board for the Journal of Molecular Microbiology.

Molecular Microbiology gained tremendous drive due to its impact on recent molecular research aimed towards understanding the microbial world through advanced molecular approaches.

Journal of Molecular Microbiology is a peer-reviewed open access journal that aims to publish the latest research advancements from microbiological studies and its application.

This journal serves as a standard international platform for showcasing the latest information generated from extensive research exercises in the realm of basic and applied microbiology.

The journal includes a wide array of topics in this field including but not limited to- Microbiology, Molecular Microbiology, Molecular basis of pathogenesis, Microbiological tests, implementation of methods with relation to Pathology, Disease Identification and diagnosis using state-of-the art molecular approaches. Apart from medical microbiology the journal will also consider research outcomes in the area of food microbiology, probiotic research, environmental microbiology, Plant microbiology, molecular understanding of viruses and their virulence, industrial microbiology etc.

To submit manuscript use online submission system or can also send your work as an e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at [email protected].

The Journal aims to reflect the developments in this field by publishing original research articles from all areas of molecular microbiology. Submission of impactful review and mini-review articles on the relevant topics is welcome. Articles showcasing implementation of novel theoretical approaches towards deep understanding on relevant topic and descriptions of novel, microbiology associated relevant software is also considered.

Contributions and ideas from large segments of the scientific community are welcome to make Journal of Molecular Microbiology a viable forum for current basic and applied microbiological research.

All the articles are peer-reviewed and published under the guidance of our Editorial Board members.

Biofilm

Biofilm is an association of microorganisms in which they are adhere to each other on a living or non-living substances within an extracellular polymeric substance, Microorganisms that form biofilms include bacteria, fungi and protists, when free floating microbes come in contact with an appropriate substance and produce a gooey substance known as extracellular polymeric substance(EPS), EPS is a network of proteins, nucleic acids, sugars.

Cell surface

Cell surface display contains peptides and proteins on microbial cells by fusing them with the anchoring motifs; Cell-surface display has many potential applications, including live vaccine development, peptide library screening, bioconversion using whole cell biocatalyst and bioadsorption, the characteristics of carrier protein, passenger protein and host cell, and fusion method all affect the efficiency of surface display of proteins.

Cyanotoxins

Cyanotoxins are toxin produced by cyanobacterial cells; cyanobacteria is also known as blue green algae, however, some cyanobacteria species are capable to release toxins into the water without cell rupture or death, the release of these toxins in an algal bloom into the surrounding water occurs mostly during cell death and lysis as opposed to continuous excretion from the cyanobacterial cells, these are the most commonly identified cyanotoxins are microcystins, cylindrospermopsin, saxitoxins and anatoxins.

Microbial cells

Microbial cell is a pathogenic bacterium, is a living thing that is too small to seen with the naked eye, by using microscope we can see them. The term microbial cells are very general. This term used to describe many different types of life forms, with dramatically different sizes and characteristics: bacteria, archaea, fungi, and protists.

Antimicrobials

Antimicrobials is an agent that kills or inhibit growth of microorganisms, antimicrobial substances that are synthetic and semi synthetic or those come from the plants and animals, these are classified into several ways including, mode of action, effect on bacteria and spectrum of activity, antimicrobial agents penetrate the cell wall of microbes and disrupt the key cell metabolic functions and inhibit their growth and reproduction.

Microplate reader

Microplate readers also known as Plate readers or enzyme league immune detector (ELISA Reader), these are instruments which are used to detect biological, physical or chemical events of samples in microtiter plates, they are widely used in research, drug discovery, and biotechnological industry and academic organization and also in the bioassay validation, quality control and manufacturing processes in the pharmaceuticals.

Bacterial virulence

The virulence is an agent of an infection to produce disease, the virulence of bacteria is a measure of the severity of the disease it causes. Bacterial virulence factors are exotoxins, virulent surface protein, and virulent enzyme, capsule, adhesins, and lipopolysaccharides. Virulence factors help bacteria to invade the host, cause disease, and evade host defences. Virulence factors that promote bacterial colonization.

Microbial enzymes

Enzymes are biocatalysts for a large number of reactions. Particularly, the microbial enzymes are widely used in industries and medicine. These enzymes are more active and stable than plant and animal enzymes. Microorganisms are the alternative source for the enzymes; we can get more amounts in short time by fermentation and owing to their biochemical diversity and susceptibility to gene manipulation.

Microbial pathogens

Different diseases are caused by different types of micro-organisms. Microbes that cause disease are called pathogens, Microbial pathogens can contaminate water, food, air and other environmental media; many different ones. An infection is the invasion and multiplication of pathogenic microbes in an individual or population, Disease is when the infection causes damage to the individual’s vital functions or systems, an infection does not always result in disease.

Microbial membranes

The Microbial cell envelope is composed of the plasma membrane and cell wall, In prokaryotes, the primary function of the cell wall is to protect the cell from internal turgor pressure caused by the much higher concentrations of proteins and other molecules inside the cell compared to its external environment.

Microbial metabolites

Metabolites are the intermediates and products of metabolism, Metabolites can be categorized into both primary and secondary metabolites, Primary metabolites are considered essential to microorganisms for proper growth. Secondary metabolites do not play a role in development, growth, and reproduction, and are formed during the stationary phase of growth, metabolites are the small molecular weight compounds produced by microbes, to regulate other organisms beneficial to them and suppress organisms that are harmful and also develop their own growth and development.

Microbial degradation

Microbial degradation here refers to the microbial conversion of organic compounds and it’s a process of mineralization by utilizing organic molecules for their catabolism, thereby returning the elements to the geobiological cycles, it is negatively impact on human health, less toxic and more useful to ecosystem, in catabolism, or energy conservation, energy-rich adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is formed.

Inter-bacterial interactions

Interspecies interactions are essential for the survival and development of any kind of complex community, particularly challenging is the attempt to understand the complexity of inter-bacterial interactions, such as cooperative ones and competitive, together with their impact on the final outcome of these communities like maturation, physiology, antimicrobial resistance, dispersal.
