Featured Article: Isolation and screening of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) bags degrading bacteria from Addis Ababa municipal solid waste disposal site “Koshe”
This study by Nademo et al. aims to screen bacterial isolates from the Addis Ababa municipal solid waste dumping site (Koshe) for the biodegradation of low-density polyethylene bags and analyzes their efficiency in degrading plastic bags.
Featured Article: Optimization of bioethanol production from sugarcane molasses by the response surface methodology using Meyerozyma caribbica isolate MJTm3
A new study by Hawaz et al. aims to optimize six fermentation parameters to generate conducive fermentation conditions for ethanol production by M. caribbica isolate MJTm3.
Mechanobiology of biofilms
This call for papers aims to explore the formation, growth and behavior of biofilms in response to internal and external mechanical cues. Topics of interest include cell-to-cell interactions, biofilm structure, dynamics and spreading, and emerging approaches for biofilm control.

Food security and sustainability from a microbiology perspective
Food security is a complex problem: to maintain agricultural productivity on degrading lands and in the face of water scarcity, or to achieve increased agricultural productivity and sustainable food production, many questions need to be answered and solutions need to be tested and implemented. Various aspects of maintaining or enhancing food production, sustainability and security can be tackled from a microbiology perspective. This collection will be open for submissions until 31st March 2024.Read More
Biology of probiotic microorganisms
Probiotics are “live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”. This collection focuses on the physiology, metabolism, structure, and phylogeny of probiotic microorganisms.
This collection will be open for submissions until 31st December 2023.Read More
Aims and scope
The aim of Annals of Microbiology is the advancement and dissemination of microbiological knowledge in the general, environmental, ecological (e.g. water, soil ecosystems, cultural heritage sites) and applied (e.g. food and industrial) fields. The methodology is usually derived from the areas of biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, biotechnology and taxonomy. Papers reporting work on bacteria, fungi, microalgae, and bacteriophages are welcome. The journal addresses researchers from both, academia and industry, working in microbiology, biotechnology or ecology. Annals of Microbiology publishes Original Articles, Reviews and Mini-Reviews, Short Communications, and Editorials.
The journal’s scope does not include theoretical bioinformatics, medical microbiology or phytopathological microbiology.
Originally founded as Annali Di Microbiologia Ed Enzimologia in 1940, Annals of Microbiology, an official journal of the University of Milan, is a well-established microbiology journal and has a long tradition of publishing sound international research.
Annals of Microbiology operates a single-blind peer-review system. Articles are reviewed by at least two external referees who are aware of the authors’ names and affiliations while the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous. Single-blind peer review is the traditional model of peer review.
