The scope of the journal includes investigations of microbiomes present in one or various body compartments of human beings or other animals. Surveys on the establishment of microbial communities as well as on microbe-microbe interactions and microbe-host communication will be considered for publication. Specifically, emphasis will be placed on the identification and functional investigation of the role exerted by microbial taxa as well as microbial-genes and microbial metabolites markers associated with health and disease. MRR focuses on studies that not only provide compositional information pertaining to the microbiota/microbiome of various animal-associated niches, but also generate insights into molecular mechanisms underlying microbiome functionality. Thus, particular emphasis will be placed on functional interactions between microbes themselves, between microbes and their environment, and between microbes and their host.
The overall aim of MRR is to publish high quality researches from scientists with a common interest in microbiome/microbiota research in all its multidisciplinary aspects. The main areas of interest include but not limit to the following:
Interdisciplinary studies of fundamental problems are particularly welcome. Microbiome Research Reports publishes a variety of formats including Original Research articles, Short Reports, Reviews and Commentaries, et al.
