About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to cover several aspects of the microbial response to stress from the different perspective of microbiologists, biotechnologists, geneticists, system biologists, biochemists and structural and molecular biologists, from both academia and the private sector working in fundamental and applied research. We wish to publish contributions that tackle the biological questions by employing established scientific approaches, as well as new technologies and approaches, which can be relevant across organisms and sectors.
Ideally, though not exclusively, the contributions to this Research Topic should arise from the interest around the topics dealt in the Microbial Stress Meeting, which will be held in Kinsale, Cork (Ireland) from 23rd to 25th April 2018. With this meeting the Conference Chairs (also Topic Editors) are aiming to gather scientists around the common theme of Microbial Stress. The goal is also to provide a strong interdisciplinary environment that will provide a forum for the circulation of new ideas for better understanding microbial physiology under stress.
Keywords: Stress defense mechanisms, Stress response networks, Sensing environmental cues, stress at the single cell level, microbial stress at production level
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.
