Special Issue "Foodborne Pathogen Campylobacter"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
Interests: pathogenicity; virulence factors; infection inhibitors; detection methods; interventions at farm level
Interests: pathogenesis; stress response; survival and persistence; genomics; -omics-based approaches; microbiome
The scope of this Special Issue will be to promote the latest research on the pathogenicity of this microorganism, starting with infection mechanisms in humans and colonization strategies in poultry. A better understanding of the biological mechanisms involved in biofilm formation and host colonization is currently necessary in order to identify possible strategies to reduce human infection and to avoid colonization at primary production. Elucidation of the interaction between Campylobacter spp. and other microorganisms using in vitro and in vivo systems will help us to understand how this pathogen behaves at the microbiome level, offering us information regarding interactions with other microorganisms and the impact on colonization ability. Research in the development of vaccines against Campylobacter spp. is also of interest and we encourage such submissions.

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 papers will be 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. Microorganisms 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 2000 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.
