Over at the Tree of Life, Jonathan Eisen alerts readers about an announcement from the American Society For Microbiology, which plans to launch its first all-online, open access journal called mBio next May. Arturo Casadevall is founding editor in chief of the journal, which plans to start accepting submissions in January. According to the mBio website, the journal's scope "will reflect the enormity of the microbial world, a highly interconnected biosphere where microbes interact with living and non-living matter to produce outcomes that range from symbiosis to pathogenesis, energy acquisition and conversion, climate change, geologic change, food and drug production, and even animal behavioral change."
