About this Research Topic
The lack of women representation not only in Microbiomes but in all scientific and tech fields, is a reality. At present, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. Gender biases, barriers and stereotypes are behind this number. In Frontiers in Microbiomes, we believe that science and gender equality are essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by UNESCO.
Frontiers in Microbiomes is committed to defeat gender discrimination, supporting and encouraging girls and women to pursue a career in the microbiome field. To achieve this ambitious goal we are proud to offer this space to increase visibility, network opportunities and promote the work of female scientist across all fields of microbiomes.
Therefore, this Research Topic aims to serve as a platform to highlight the innovations and work leaded by female scientists. Researchers are invited to present advances in theory, experiment, and methodology with applications to compelling problems in the field of Environmental Microbiomes, including host-microbe interactions in the environment.
Please note: to be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be a researcher who identifies as a woman.
