Call for papers: Electrified Biofilms

Biofilm Special issue: Electrified Biofilms


Biofilm is currently calling for manuscripts for an upcoming special issue called ‘Electrified Biofilms’.

Electroactive biofilms continue to attract great interest for diverse applications including power and energy, water treatment, chemical production, and even human health. The discovery of extracellular electron transport in the human microbiome, development of electrofermentation strategies, and the use of synthetic biology to create new technologies with electroactive bacteria are among the exciting new research areas.

The journal is calling for submissions of original studies that investigate biofilms composed of electroactive bacteria, either associated with natural environments or in bioelectrochemical systems, and the physical, chemical, and biological processes associated with their growth, structure, and function.


Open for submissions until 15 April 2021.
