Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microorganisms can interact with higher organisms in many different ways, e.g., beneficially as symbionts, indifferently as commensals or harmfully as pathogens. Today, a wide variety of molecular and cell biology tools, including advanced microscopy and -omics techniques, allow us to study these interactions at a molecular level. This Special Issue will deal with pathogenic bacteria and unicellular eukaryotes and their interaction with plants, animals, and humans. Reviews and research articles focusing on either the pathogen’s or the host’s side are welcome.
