Microbiome of the Built Environment (MoBE) 2017: Research to Application

We are pleased to announce the launch of this collection of articles dedicated to the microbiome of the built environment.

The goal of the MoBE 2017: Research to Application series is to present the latest MoBE research findings furthering our understanding of the formation and function of microbial communities in built environments, their impacts on human health, and how human occupants shape complex indoor microbiomes in relation to human exposure.

Open for submissions - Host-microbiota interactions: from holobiont theory to analysis

In follow up to the First International Conference on Holobionts held in Paris in April 2017, Microbiome will be publishing a special series on 'Host-microbiota interactions: from holobiont theory to analysis'.

The Guest Editors are welcoming submissions for consideration within the series. If you would like your manuscript to be considered for the series, please indicate so in the submission system or in your cover letter.

Please note the deadline for submissions has beeen extended to 15th November 2017

Microbiome of the Built Environment (MoBE) 2017: Research to Application

Edited by: Lynn Schriml and Christopher Mason

Past series
Microbiology of the built environment
Edited by: Jack A Gilbert and Brent Stephens

Aims and scope

Topics broadly addressing the study of microbial communities, such as, microbial surveys, bioinformatics, meta-omics approaches and community/host interaction modeling will be considered for publication. Through this collection of literature Microbiome hopes to integrate researchers with common scientific objectives across a broad cross-section of sub-disciplines within microbial ecology.

When submitting a manuscript to Microbiome, we ask that authors select a specified section to submit to as outlined below. This is to facilitate the manuscript assessment and review process.

1. Gut microbiomes and Immunology
2. Genital, skin, oral microbiomes
3. Respiratory microbiomes
4. Other human microbiomes
7. Novel Methodological approaches (including meta-omics)
5. Bioinformatics: algorithms and software
6. Animal microbiomes
7. Plant microbiomes
7. Environmental microbiomes
8. Built-environment microbiomes

Editor Profiles

Jacques Ravel is a Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the Associate Director for Genomics at the Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD. His research program is focused on applying modern genomics technologies and ecological principles to characterize the role and dynamics of the microbial communities inhabiting the human body in health and disease and better define the interactions between the host, the microbes and the environment that drive these ecological systems.

Dr Ravel received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Maryland College Park in Environmental Molecular Microbiology and Ecology and performed his postdoctoral work at the Johns Hopkins University in the Department of Chemistry. Before accepting his current position, Dr. Ravel was an Assistant Investigator at the Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in Rockville, MD.
