Microbial Informatics and Experimentation will cease to be published by BioMed Central as of 1st June 2014. BioMed Central will continue to host an archive of all articles previously published in the journal and all articles published in Microbial Informatics and Experimentation during its time with BioMed Central will remain fully searchable via the BioMed Central website.
Aims & scope
Microbial Informatics and Experimentation is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal, collegial in tone, which publishes high-quality research related to the application of computational methods to data from microbial organisms and systems.
The journal aims to be a resource for both computational and experimental scientists, in which computational methods inform experimentation, and vice versa.
Topics of interest, reflected in the Editorial Board, include, but are not limited to:
- Microbial comparative genomics
- Microbial protein structure and function
- Metagenomics of microbes
- Mathematical modeling of microbial systems
- Synthetic and Systems Microbial Biology
