Interests: microbial diversity; microbial systematics; ecophysiology of microorganisms; functional diversity of microorganisms; microbial ecosystems
Advanced molecular analyses indicate that there is still unexplored microbial diversity to be mined in ecosystems. Information revealed through microbial diversity measurements based on genetic variability, population size, distribution and function of targeted species within microbial communities can now bring about a new level of understanding of the interactions in microbial ecosystems. The availability of such information is also crucial in the design of sustainable environmental strategies.
Diversity journal dedicates a special issue to the Genetic and functional diversity of microorganisms to explore these aspects. I look forward to your contribution to make it a successful collection of papers.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diversity is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
