Through well-researched features and updates on current issues and relevant research, Microbiology Australia serves as a forum for:
• invigorating discussion on microbiology, microbiological methods and microbiologists
• raising awareness of the wide applications of microbiology, and
• explaining the benefits and perspectives of microbiology.
