Microbial research has been sped up during the last decade with the innovations from genomic sequencing technologies. Various sequencing techniques have been designed to efficiently address questions such as which, where and how microbial organisms functionate within a given environment. For instance, using different sequencing protocols, investigators can now efficiently scan microbial species related to human health such as infectious diseases, identify their interactions with the human cells and estimate their distinct effects on human cell functions. These protocols include that targeting to the microbial genome as well as that focusing on host genomes. Accompanying with the new sequencing protocols, the novel computational techniques have played critical roles in interpreting the accumulated microbial sequencing datasets. In this special issue, we invite research innovations, particularly focused on computational research, to address challenges in microbial-associated genome sequencing. We look forward to exciting works in this gallery on advances in microbial sequencing.
