Special Issue "Macro and Microorganism Interactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2019
The knowledge of symbiotic, parasitic, and commensal interactions between macro and microorganisms is fundamental to explain their coexistence, ecology, and productivity. These interactions constitute an extraordinarily complex web that includes trophic structures and molecular communications. The net of interactions between macro and microorganisms is very tight and shows its own metabolic and regulatory processes. Therefore, some authors have introduced the terms “holobiont” and “superorganism”. Nowadays, the use of traditional approaches and omics technologies allows the improvement of our knowledge about many aspects of this emerging and exciting field of research. Therefore, we decided to launch a Special Issue on macro and microorganism interactions, to which you are kindly invited to contribute with either an original paper or a review article. These are the topics that will be considered for the Special Issue:
a) Plant–microorganism interactions;
b) Algae–microorganism interactions;
c) Animal–microorganism interactions.

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 1000 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.
