Call for biotechnology papers from the Microbiology Society's journal Microbiology

Microbiology is inviting submissions of research articles and reviews that focus on established and emerging topics in biotechnology. Articles are welcome that utilise microbial systems to develop technologies and products that could improve our lives or our environment.

Articles are invited on the following topics: metabolic engineering, metabolomics, genetic engineering, synthetic biology, directed evolution, bioremediation, bioengineering, protein engineering, microbes as cell factories, and bioenergy.

The biotechnology section of Microbiology is overseen by Dr Gavin Thomas, Dr Louise Horsfall and Professor Saul Purton. For more information about submitting your article please visit the Microbiology website or email mic@microbiologysociety.org.

The Microbiology Society will exhibit at the European Congress on Biotechnology Meeting in Krakow, Poland on July 3−6 2016. Staff will be on hand at Stand 27 to discuss submissions to Microbiology as well as the Society’s new open access journal, Microbial Genomics.

Tell us about your area of research or study in our survey

Emerging Topics in Life Sciences is a new journal which will be published by The Biochemical Society and Royal Society of Biology, featuring reviews discussing emerging topics of interest from across the life sciences. We would be most grateful if you could take a few minutes to answer a couple of quick questions to help us gather some feedback. There are 4 questions and the survey should take no more than 3 minutes to complete. Complete survey here.

IEX 2016: Ion Exchange − a continuing success story
6 - 8 July 2016

The SCI IEX Conferences provide the opportunity for the ion exchange manufacturing and service companies, end user and researchers to present papers on the theory and practice of ion exchange and adsorbents and to discuss the industry’s contribution to current practice and future industrial developments. The Conferences started in 1954 and have been held regularly at 4 year intervals since 1976. They are now established as one of the major international conferences of the ion exchange community. Worldwide the IEX Conferences share this role with the Japanese Association of Ion Exchange Conferences and since 2004 both these events have been co-ordinated by the independent International Committee for Ion Exchange.
