Bacteria and Host is a specialty section within Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, publishing rigorously peer-reviewed research that advances our knowledge on the interactions between bacterial pathogens and their host at the cellular and organism levels. The host can be animals, single cells, or organoid cultures, and should aim to highlight the relevance to human health and disease.
Bacteria and Host publishes research focusing on the interactions between bacterial pathogens and their host at the cellular and organism levels. The host can be animals, complex tissue, organoid cultures, or single cells, preferably with relevance to human health and disease. The host cell responses to bacterial infection involve cellular, vesicular, organellar, biochemical and biological modulations.
If the main focus of the paper is on vaccine development and infection prevention, rather than cell host and bacteria interactions it should be submitted to Vaccines and Molecular Therapeutics, Frontiers in Immunology Studies focused on molecular bacterial pathogenesis, in which host cell modulations in response to infection is not the focus of the studies, should be submitted to Molecular Bacterial Pathogenesis.
