About This Special Issue
Microbiology is a vast and interesting field in the biological sciences. As the mother of all biological sciences, it holds sway to revolutionizing healthcare delivery across the world due to the potential biological activities of microorganisms that have been exploited in time past and now (even more) to improve mans living condition. Microbiology Research will see to the speedy publication of high-quality papers that will assist in knowledge dissemination in this very important field, and bring researchers, scientists, lecturers and students alike to novel discoveries in the field of Microbiology across the globe.

This special issue could serve as a panacea to bringing researchers in the field of microbiology close to practicable data as it relates to infectious diseases and their containment across the globe.

Review of manuscripts will be completed within one week after submission. Accepted manuscripts will be published as soon as authors pay the article processing fee.
