Upcoming Special Issue

We are pleased to announce the opening of a Special Issue entitled “Mechanisms of Microbial Adaptation to Low pH” in the MDPI journal Genes (IF 3.31). Submission of relevant and high quality manuscripts are welcome!
This issue is in line with the objectives of our COST Action, committed to aiding the understanding of the details of how model and non-model micro-organisms detect and respond to low pH.
