Antonie van Leeuwenhoek - 80 years


Founded in 1934, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. Over the decades, the journal has successfully refined its content to embrace new developments, while remaining true to its roots as a journal of general microbiology, and has played a major part in the field.

The editors and publishers of the journal, for limited period, are providing free access to a special issue compiled to mark the 80 year milestone.

The contents are:
  • Celebrating the 80th anniversary of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek: a special issue
  • Still going strong: Leeuwenhoek at eighty
  • The origins of cellular life
  • Then and now: a systematic review of the systematics of prokaryotes in the last 80 years
  • Time to revisit polyphasic taxonomy
  • On the reclassification of species assigned to Candida and other anamorphic ascomycetous yeast genera based on phylogenetic circumscription
  • Indole-3-acetic acid in plant–microbe interactions
  • Pivotal roles for Streptomyces cell surface polymers in morphological differentiation, attachment and mycelial architecture
  • Impact of genomics on the field of probiotic research: historical perspectives to modern paradigms
  • 3-Ketosteroid 9α-hydroxylase enzymes: Rieske non-heme monooxygenases essential for bacterial steroid degradation
  • The re-emerging role of microbial natural products in antibiotic discovery
