Zoonotic pathogens have always been a major threat to global public health security and agricultural production. More than 60% of all known human pathogens are zoonotic, with 75% of all emerging infectious diseases causing zoonoses. Many factors, including geographic demographics, the environment, and social characteristics such as the indiscriminate and higher use of antibiotics in animal husbandry, combine to promote the spread of zoonotic diseases. The “One Health” approach is advocated to link human health, animal health, and the environment. In terms of bacterial zoonotic pathogens, the emergence and extensive spread of multidrug-resistant bacteria of animal origin has alerted us to the dangers of the use of antibiotics in animals worldwide. At present, research in the medical and veterinary fields is committed to effectively controlling the spread of zoonotic pathogens, interfering with the pathogenic process, and curbing the development of antibiotic resistance. In this Special Issue, relevant original research articles and reviews focusing on the bacterial epidemiology of zoonotic bacteria, pathogenesis, vaccine development research, the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance as well as anti-virulence therapies of alternative antibiotics and other strategies to curb the development of antibiotic resistance are welcome, especially those linking closely the findings and practical applications.

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 special issue 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. Microbiology Research is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
