Aims and scope

Gut Pathogens publishes research on both biological and clinical aspects of the pathogens of the gut. Studies on commensals and functional microbiota of the gut, including probiotic bacteria should be essentially in the context of infection, immunity, treatment, control or epidemiology of the enteropathogenic bacteria and other pathogens of the gut including viruses and fungi. The journal also considers timely reports on the novel aspects of genomics, metagenomics, microbiota profiling and systems biology with reference to enteric infections and pathogen evolution or fitness traits such as the antimicrobial resistance.
