Titolo della Special Issue New Drugs and Novel Cellular Targets against Tuberculosis
Breve descrizione della Special issue (max 200 caratteri in inglese) The spread of drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains is worrisome for both the current antitubercular therapy and also for drugs recently released on the market. So, the discovery of novel drugs and new cellular targets against tuberculosis is mandatory.

Titolo della Special Issue "Microbial Genetics and Evolution"
Breve descrizione della Special issue (max 200 caratteri in inglese) Microorganisms have been thriving on Earth for billions of years and their environments have undergone fundamental changes over this time: thus, they have evolved extraordinary capacities to adapt to environmental and evolutionary challenges. Clues as to how they started and traveled along this evolutionary road are conserved in their genomes; the current structure and organization of genes and genomes have been increasingly characterized thanks to modern and efficient molecular techniques, making possible a better understanding of the mechanisms at the basis of their evolution, expansion, and shaping. From the appearance of complex networks of biochemical reactions and cell physiological processes to the emergence of new antibiotic resistances, from the coevolution with hosts and reciprocal adaptation to the development of complex mechanisms of gene expression, and from the methylation of genomes to the discovery of novel genetic engineering tools, microorganisms are extraordinary models to study evolution in action and its genetic basis. The diversity observed in the microbial world allows the comprehension of the processes behind genetic diversity; viruses, bacteria, archaea, and yeasts are the subjects of laboratory studies and in silico analyses, aiming to investigate the evolution of their genomes and the link between genotypes and phenotypes.

Titolo della Special Issue Regulation and Functions of RNA Exonucleases in Gram Negative Bacteria
Breve descrizione della Special issue (max 200 caratteri in inglese) RNA endo- and exonucleases (collectively referred to as ribonucleases, RNases) play fundamental roles in all kinds of cells.
Indeed, they modulate the intracellular concentration of different RNA transcripts, thus contributing to gene expression regulation.
Moreover, they provide the cells with mature and functional RNA molecules and contribute to recycling nucleotides.
The aim of this Special Issue is to advance the knowledge of hydrolytic and phosphorolytic exoribonucleases (exoRNases) of Gram-negative bacteria by collecting research articles, short communications, and reviews about their regulation and function.
Extensive studies performed in the last four decades have allowed us to understand the fundamental aspects of the function of these enzymes, of their interaction with other cellular factors, and of the processes in which they are involved.
However, important questions remain about the regulation of the expression of exoRNase-encoding genes and of the intracellular localization of exoRNases.
Unclear are also the rules and mechanisms governing their specificity and activity so that they can extensively digest some RNAs and process others by accurately removing precise RNA portions.
Moreover, RNA processing and degradation have mainly been studied in a few model species.
It would be important to enlarge the analysis to other bacteria to get a more comprehensive understanding of the conservation and divergence of these processes in the branches of the bacterial phylogenetic tree.
