About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will collect selected contributions from attendants of Microbiology 2019, the 33rd Congress of the Italian Society for General Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology (SIMGBM), held in Florence, Italy, on 19th-22nd June 2019.
This Research Topic is intended to provide a collection of selected contributions from oral presentations within the general label «Antimicrobials and Host-Pathogen Interactions», including selected papers from presentations in sessions listed below. The multidisciplinary approach of this Research Topic is of great value for anyone interested in the results of Italian research in the field of «Antimicrobials and Host-Pathogen Interactions».
Topics within the «Antimicrobials and Host-Pathogen Interactions» sessions were:
1. Antibiotic resistome: where do antibiotic resistance genes come from?
2. New antimicrobial strategies in the post-antibiotic era
3. Intercellular communication in host-pathogen interactions
4. New approaches to unravel fungal-host interactions
5. Bacterial cell surface and signaling
6. Microbial genetics and genomics
7. Interactions between microbes/viruses and their hosts
Contributors are welcome to submit Original Research, Method, Mini-review and Review articles related to the selected topics covered in the Microbiology 2019 Congress. Submissions to this Research Topic are limited to the conference attendees and their co-authors.
Keywords: Antibiotics, Bacteria, Fungi, Bacterial Communication, Host-Pathogen Interactions, Pathogenesis, Phage therapy, Resistome, Cell-To-Cell Signaling, Virulence, Viruses
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
