Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology (JBP) is an scholarly Open Access journal and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of the Bacteriology and Parasitology and making them freely available worldwide.
As editor of the Journal, I consider a personal commitment the quest to reach and maintain top-tier standards for works submitted and accepted in our publication. This of course, requires knowledge, team effort, and time to accomplish.
I am glad to say that I am confident, all participants of Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology will work hard to maintain a high quality journal that is innovative and helpful to its community. We welcome original research, reviews of the literature, short communication, commentaries, case reports, book reviews, and works-in-progress. Editor, reviewers, authors and readers are the strength of this journal and I feel personally obligated if all of them contribute to take the journal to greater heights.
The journal will emphasize high-level research on many topics related to Microbiology. Therefore, we welcome any clinical and basic science research, as long as the study presents interesting, novel, and scientifically sound findings dealing with Bacteria and Parasites of Medical relevance to human or veterinary health, as well as those with application in Environmental or Food Sciences.
We really appreciate that you are joining us as readers and look forward to having the opportunity of your joining us as contributors. Any comments or suggestions you may have that would improve JBP are sincerely welcomed.

Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms and the part of microbiological science which encompasses the study of bacteria is known as “Bacteriology”. Major researches in bacteriology over the past years resulted in the development of many useful vaccines.

The science dealing with parasites and parasitism is “Parasitology”. The objective is to study the environmental dependence of parasite and host. Parasitic diseases include infections that are due to various parasitic organisms such as protozoa, helminths and arthropods.

Parasitic infections are caused by parasites. Few parasites affect the host, grow and give off toxins resulting an infection. Parasitic infections can be spread through various ways such as contaminated water, waste, food, blood etc. Parasites usually enter the body through the mouth or skin.

Bacterial ecology is defined as the interaction between bacteria and with their environment. Bacteria play a vital role in the biosphere and certain key processes, such as, the production and oxidation of methane, soil formation, conversion of rock to soil etc.

Escherichia coli also known as E. coli is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic bacterium mostly found in colons of endotherms. Most of its species are harmless but due to transformation or mutation the virulent strains can cause infections such as gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections, meningitis in infants, severe abdominal cramps, diarrhea and also in rare cases responsible for bowel necrosis, hemolytic-uremic syndrome, peritonitis, mastitis, septicemia, Gram-negative pneumonia.

Host-Pathogen interactions take place between a pathogen and their host. Host/pathogen interaction is emerging as a key area of infectious disease research in the post-genomic era.

Bacterial toxins are the toxic substances that are produced and released by bacteria. They are mainly exotoxins and endotoxins. Many bacterial toxins are proteins also known as exotoxins. An important non-protein toxin is lipopolysaccharide or endotoxin.

Bacterial genomics is a scientific discipline that concerns the genome, encompassing the entire hereditary information, of bacteria. Bacterial genomes are generally smaller and less variant in size between species when compared with genomes of animals and single cell eukaryotes. Bacterial genomics can, for example, be used to study bacterial evolution or outbreaks of bacterial infections. bacteria show a strong correlation between genome size and number of functional genes in a genome.

Bacteremia is the presence of viable bacteria in the blood. It is most commonly diagnosed by blood culture. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream as a severe complication of infections.

Salmonella is a genus of rod-shaped bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae family. Salmonella are found worldwide in both cold-blooded and warm-blooded animals, and in the environment. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection.

Intestinal parasites are organisms that live in the gastrointestinal tract of animals, including humans. Parasites can live within the intestines for years without causing any symptoms. The two main types of intestinal parasites are helminths and protozoa. Intestinal parasites are usually transmitted when someone comes in contact with infected feces.

A worm classified as a parasite also known as “Helminths”. Parasitic flatworms feed on blood, tissue fluids, or pieces of cells inside the bodies of their hosts. They are often referred to as intestinal worms.

Infections caused by disease causing bacteria or pathogenic bacteria termed as “Bacterial Infections”. Bacteria can be beneficial – for instance, gut bacteria help us to digest food – but some are responsible for a range of infections. Serious infections can be treated with antibiotics, which work by disrupting the bacterium’s metabolic processes, although antibiotic-resistant strains are starting to emerge.

Leprosy is also known as Hansen's disease and is a chronic infection caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae and Mycobacterium lepromatosis. Symptoms may include granulomas in respiratory tract, skin, and eyes. These results to inability to feel pain and thus loss of parts of extremities due to repeated injuries may occur.

Lyme disease is an infectious disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis is caused by bacteria of the Borrelia type. The symptom of infection is an expanding area of redness, known as erythema migrans, that begins at the site of a tick bite and after a week a rash is developed which is typically neither itchy nor painful.

*Unofficial 2015 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X
