The Microbiome Across Biological Systems

Calls for Papers Collections

Microbiomes are complex communities of bacteria, fungi, archaea, viruses, and microscopic eukaryotic organisms that can inhabit diverse environments, from the human gut, to soil, to even the atmosphere. These communities can impact an equally wide range of processes, including human brain development, pathogen virulence, and ecosystem nutrient cycling. New technologies and methods for studying microbiomes—their composition, formation, and how they influence their surroundings—are constantly emerging and researchers are only just starting to untangle these complex interactions. PLOS ONE and PLOS Biology are excited to publish a shared Collection on the topic of microbiomes across biological systems.
