About the Journal

Index Copernicus Value: 84.45

Bacteriology is the conventional branch of Microbiology, which focuses on basic microbiology, host-pathogen interactions, biochemistry, molecular biology and mechanisms, ecology and epidemiology of bacteria. Parasitology is a closest relative of Medical Microbiology that encompasses the parasite world ranging from protozoans to helminthes. The Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology is specialist journal, which is known for its state-of –the –art presentation of the latest discoveries in Bacteriology and Parasitology.

Bacteriology and Parasitology is a dynamic field, as these worms constantly change the morphology, hosts, and host relationships. Therefore, Journal of Bacteriology and Parasitology adds new discoveries to our basic knowledge by which the information transforms from basic understanding to practical and clinical application. Since, these fields producing exciting discoveries and information on a regular basis, the Journal Bacteriology and Parasitology updates the microbiologists, pathologists, clinicians and veterinary specialists. As an electronic based Open Access journal, The Journal of Bacteriology and Parasitology is the prime priority among the research communities for updated path breaking discoveries in Bacteriology and Parasitology.

This journal considers articles from all aspect of understanding related to bacteriology and parasitology, which includes Bacterial Ecology, Parasitic Infection, Pathogenic Bacteria, Bacterial toxin, Bacterial genomics, Bacteraemia, Salmonella, Bacterial Diseases, Intestinal parasites, Parasitic Worms, Anthrax, Clostridial infections, Leprosy, Listeriosis, etc. High quality submissions are expected to maintain the standard of the journal and to attain high impact factor.

Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems used by most of the best open access journals. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor's approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript.

Authors are requested to submit their manuscripts online at or send as an e-mail attachment to [email protected] or [email protected] or [email protected]

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 Infection

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

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

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

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 Toxin

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

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

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.

Parasitic Worms

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.

Bacterial Infections

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

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.

Major Disease Statistics
*2018 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2016 and 2017 with the number of times they are cited in 2018 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2016 and 2017, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2018 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
