Microbial Genomics is a fully open access, open data, peer reviewed journal that publishes high quality, original research on archaea, bacteria, microbial eukaryotes and viruses. Submissions are welcome from across the breadth of microbiology and should include a genomic approach.

Our aim is to publish articles communicating novel insights gained from using genomic data, exciting new applications and innovative analysis approaches. Read the full journal scope.

Microbial Genomics supports the use of pre-print servers and is currently trialling direct submissions to the journal from bioRxiv.

Microbial Genomics has partnered with Microreact; a free data visualisation and sharing platform,  find out more.
