We launched a new journal with a focus on innovative studies that report on new methodologies in microbial ecology!

ISME Communications 

ISME is establishing a nomenclature code for uncultured microorganisms, an initiative called SeqCode

ISME and the South Africa Local Organizing Committee made the difficult decision to postpone our ISME18 August 2022 meeting in South Africa to a later date. We are pleased to announce that the winner of the alternative is Lausanne, Switzerland!
