    Aims and Scope


    Archives of Microbiology publishes papers on all areas of basic research in microbiology.

    Research papers must make a significant and original contribution to
    microbiology and be of interest to a broad readership. The results of any
    experimental approach that meets these objectives are welcome, particularly
    biochemical, molecular genetic, physiological, and/or physical investigations into
    microbial cells and their interactions with their environments. 

    Mini-reviews in areas of special topical interest are also published.  

    Theoretical papers and those that report analysis of 'mining' of data are
    acceptable in principle if new information, interpretation, or hypotheses
