Viral infection: When two become one
p511 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.85
Two recent studies provide new insights into the fusion stage of HIV-1 entry.


Biofilms: Building up the matrix
p512 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.91
Two independent recent studies have revealed how distinct components of the biofilm matrix contribute to its architectural stability and functionality.


Bacterial physiology: Efflux pumps, fitness and virulence
p512 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.97
Two new studies explore the effect of overexpression of efflux pumps on bacterial fitness as well as the effect of loss of efflux function on virulence.


Bacterial pathogenesis: Bacteriophages, the glue that holds bacteria together
p514 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.96
A recent study provides a mechanism by which a bacteriophage may increase the translocation of Neisseria meningitidis into the bloodstream.


Bacterial genetics: Splitting is never easy
p514 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.98
Two recent studies shed light on the mechanisms that coordinate cell division with chromosomal replication and segregation in two distinct bacterial species.

p516 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.95
This month's Genome Watch discusses how genome-wide epistasis analysis and genome-to-genome analyses are providing insights into the relevance of interactions between and within genomes of pathogens and their hosts.
Pseudomonas predators: understanding and exploiting phage-host interactions
Jeroen De Smet, Hanne Hendrix, Bob G. Blasdel, Katarzyna Danis-Wlodarczyk & Rob Lavigne
p517 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.61
Species in the genus Pseudomonas thrive in diverse ecological niches and are infected with equally diverse bacteriophages. In this Review, De Smet et al. discuss the interactions between Pseudomonas spp. and their phages and also address the biotechnological applications that may be derived from phage-bacteria interactions.

Article series: Microbiome
Transmission of the gut microbiota: spreading of health
Hilary P. Browne, B. Anne Neville, Samuel C. Forster & Trevor D. Lawley
p531 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.50
The transmission of commensal intestinal bacteria between humans could promote health by establishing, maintaining and replenishing microbial diversity in the microbiota of an individual. In this Review, Browne and colleagues discuss the mechanisms and factors that influence host-to-host transmission of the intestinal microbiota.

Article series: New technologies: methods and applications
Engineering of obligate intracellular bacteria: progress, challenges and paradigms
Erin E. McClure, Adela S. Oliva Chávez, Dana K. Shaw, Jason A. Carlyon, Roman R. Ganta, Susan M. Noh, David O. Wood, Patrik M. Bavoil, Kelly A. Brayton, Juan J. Martinez, Jere W. McBride, Raphael H. Valdivia, Ulrike G. Munderloh & Joao H. F. Pedra
p544 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.59
In this Review, Pedra and colleagues describe the advances and challenges in the genetic engineering of obligate intracellular bacteria, and highlight examples of how the use of genetically manipulated pathogens has improved our understanding of microbial pathogenesis and host–pathogen interactions.

Viral effects on the content and function of extracellular vesicles
Nancy Raab-Traub & Dirk P. Dittmer
p559 | doi:10.1038/nrmicro.2017.60
The release of membrane-bound vesicles from cells is being increasingly recognized as a mechanism of intercellular communication. In this Review, Raab-Traub and Dittmer discuss the roles that extracellular vesicles have during virus infection.
