microLife is a new scientific journal for research results in microbiology and related disciplines. Great importance is attached to the high scientific quality and significance of the publications as well as to their novelty. microLife will provide a platform for high-quality research from the entire spectrum of microbiology - from molecular biology, physiology and genetics to microbiome research and infection biology. In the spirit of transparent and open science, all articles in microLife will be freely accessible after peer review (gold Open Access).

microLife is the publication organ of the European Academy of Microbiology (EAM) and is supported by the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS). The journal is made by scientists for scientists. The editorial board is composed of internationally renowned microbiologists as Editors in Chief:

  • Axel Brakhage, scientific director of the Leibniz-HKI and chair of microbiology and molecular biology at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena
