Microbiology Today: Actinobacteria

Actinobacteria* are the stars in the May issue of Microbiology Today, the magazine of the Society for General Microbiology. This is a good opportunity to learn the basics and review hot topics in the field. Relevant articles:
  • An introduction to the actinobacteria. By Sir David Hopwood.
  • Streptomyces: not just antibiotics. By Rosemary Loria, Madhumita Joshi & Simon Moll.
  • Good, bad, but beautiful: the weird and wonderful actinobacteria. By Paul A. Hoskisson.
  • Corynebacteria: the good guys and the bad guys. By Michael Bott.
  • The mycobacteria. By Matt Hutchings.
Good reading!

(*) My next post will deal with the use of the terms "actinobacteria" and "actinomycetes".
