Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topical Collection, entitled “Feature Papers in Molecular Microbiology”, aims to collect high-quality research articles, communications, and review articles on the cutting-edge fields of molecular microbiology. Since the aim of this Topical Collection is to illustrate, through selected works, frontier research in Molecular Microbiology, we encourage the Editorial Board Members of Current Issues in Molecular Biology to contribute Feature Papers reflecting the latest progress in their research field or to invite relevant experts and colleagues to do so.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Virology;
  • Bacteriology;
  • Microbiomes;
  • Veterinary microbiology;
  • Food microbiology;
  • Agricultural microbiology;
  • Infectious diseases;
  • Fungal diseases;
  • Antibacterials and antimicrobials.

Dr. Bruce S. Seal
Collection Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Current Issues in Molecular Biology is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Tuberculosis (TB), caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) complex, is a zoonotic disease that remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Latent tuberculosis infection reactivation is a challenging obstacle to eradicating TB globally. Understanding the gene regulatory network of Mtb during dormancy is important. This review discusses up-to-date information about TB gene regulatory networks during dormancy, focusing on the regulation of lipid and energy metabolism, dormancy survival regulator (DosR), White B-like (Wbl) family, Toxin-Antitoxin (TA) systems, sigma factors, and MprAB. We outline the progress in vaccine and drug development associated with Mtb dormancy. Full article
