Microbes are recognized for their diverse metabolic activity and ubiquitous presence, unique strategies of survival under extreme conditions, and important impacts on human health and technology. Microbes are single-cell organisms so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle. They are the oldest form of life on earth.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
