Thematic Issue on RNA

FEMS Microbiology Reviews has selected a series of articles that highlight some of the recent findings on RNA biology in bacteria focusing on RNA biogenesis, modes of action, regulatory mechanisms and functions. The continuous effort to adapt innovative technologies and biological approaches to the bacterial RNA field has advanced our understanding of how regulatory RNAs and their interacting partners function and cooperate in the cell to fine-tune gene expression in response to changing environmental conditions and stresses and thereby affect the physiology of bacteria at multiple levels.

Guest editors: Emmanuelle Charpentier & Wolfgang Hess

Historical microbiology, is it relevant in the 21st century?

Facsimile microscopes have been used to examine the possibilities of van Leeuwenhoek microscopes with a range of magnifications, particularly to confirm that bacteria can be seen if the microscope is strong enough. The relevance of historical microbiology in education is also illustrated by adapting versions of van Leeuwenhoek's pepper water experiment and Beijerinck's use of bioluminescent bacteria as oxygen probes.

Survey - microbiology education

Is microbiology losing its identity to modern molecular and genetic sciences? While there is a perceived reduction in the number of microbiology degrees being delivered, microbiology remains a fundamental component of many degrees with a wider remit. We believe that microbiology is thriving, but that there are difficulties in measuring this success. Manchester Metropolitan University is therefore inviting you to fill in a survey on microbiology education. Your input will inform future strategies in raising awareness of the diversity and significance of the discipline.
