Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.
The Editors of BMC Cancer and BMC Microbiology are exited to announce the launch and invite of submissions to our ‘Microbiome and Cancer’ collection. Guest edited by Prof Christopher Staley and Dr. Sean Devlin.
BMC Series Focus Issues
With Stem Cell Awareness day on the 13th October this year we have compiled an article collection from across different BMC Series journals covering aspects of basic stem cell biology; in vitro differentiation studies; stem-cell based therapy studies for various conditions in animal models; technical advancements and ethical issues.
In recognition of World Patient Safety Awareness day on 17th September, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research. We have collated free-to-read content from across our journals - showcasing patient perspectives, research into the study of PPI, and engaging public partners as co-authors in research.
This study finds that changes in soil microbial communities can influence and are associated with deterioration of the earthen site over time.
In this recent study, authors find that paternal weight of ducks influence the offspring's small intestine function and cecal microbiome.

Aims and scope
BMC Microbiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all microorganisms - bacteria, archaea, algae and fungi, viruses, unicellular parasites and helminths. It considers studies on all aspects of the biology and biochemistry of microorganisms including but not limited to cell biology, genomics, signalling, the interaction of the microbes with the environment and host, mechanistic and functional insights into infection and disease, and biotechnological application in science and industry.
