Featured article: Burkholderia pseudomallei-absent soil bacterial community results in secondary metabolites that kill this pathogen

Burkholderia pseudomallei is a Gram-negative bacterium found in soil and the causative agent of a severe disease in humans and animals known as melioidosis. It is intrinsically resistant to many antibiotics and has been reported resistant to the drugs of choice; ceftazidime. In this paper, Potisap et al utilise a metagenomics approach to investigate microbial communities in soil in the presence and absence of B. pseudomallei.

Aims and scope

AMB Express is a high quality journal that brings together research in the area of Applied and Industrial Microbiology with a particular interest in 'White Biotechnology' and 'Red Biotechnology'. The emphasis is on processes employing microorganisms, eukaryotic cell cultures or enzymes for the biosynthesis, transformation and degradation of compounds. This includes fine and bulk chemicals, polymeric compounds and enzymes or other proteins. Downstream processes are also considered. Integrated processes combining biochemical and chemical processes are also published.

Editor's quote

The recent achievement of the high-quality journal "AMB Express," namely its being indexed by ISI, has made this fully open access journal even more attractive for authors. In the few years since its launch the journal has published several excellent and highly cited papers. Therefore, we can expect that the first impact factor published in the Thomas Reuters Science Citation Index will be reasonably high. The editors of "AMB Express" will ensure that the journal's performance and the quality of the published papers will continue to improve. Papers devoted to 'Industrial Microbiology' and in particular interest in 'White and Red Biotechnology' are highly welcome; this also includes short papers in which important achievements are communicated.
