First EarlyView Papers for MicrobiologyOpen are Published
Wiley Open Access is pleased to publish our first EarlyView papers for MicrobiologyOpen, available here. These papers demonstrate the broad scope of the journal and illustrate the high scientific standard we will maintain going forward.
Nakamura et al.’s paper presents their research on a new species of Saccharophagus (Myt-1, found in Toyama Bay, Japan) that produces enzymes capable of effectively decomposing different kinds of seaweed and their component polysaccharides, while Yikmis and Steinbüchel present a system optimized for the expression of recombinant Lcp / active Lcp in the supernatant and the microbial degradation of rubber by different Streptomyces strains. Last, but by no means least, MicrobiologyOpen’s Editor-in-Chief, Pierre Cornelis, contributes an exciting paper which illustrates that a cosmid clone containing both an alcohol dehydrogenase and an aldehyde dehydrogenase from Acetobacter pasteurianus conferred an important production of acetic acid in E. coli, leading to the degradation of casein.
We are receiving a steady stream of submissions and look forward to receiving more. If you would like more information about submitting to MicrobiologyOpen, please visit our author guidelines and, if you decide you would like to submit, please visit our submission site here.
