    • Abstract


      Perhaps we should be more cautions in our vision of how a scientist should behave, a perception closely tied to the present-day organization of scientific research — with its extreme specialization. Is the present situation optimal? And was not the huge spectrum of activities and interests of Emile Duclaux also necessary for the rapid development of microbiology and its general acceptance? We should not reduce the history of medicine to a catalog of the discoverers of diseases. As a scientific organizer, and a prime mover in the development of microbiology, Emile Duclaux deserves a place in our memories.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
