Volume 59 of the Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry series represents material prepared for a short course entitled ‘Molecular Geomicrobiology’ that was held at the University of California, Berkeley, on 3–4 December, 2005. This volume follows that published in 1997 (Volume 35, Geomicrobiology: Interactions between Microbes and Minerals). The title of the more recent volume reflects a new exciting stage of the research in this interdisciplinary field that came with the development of modern tools in genomics, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, physics and microscopy, and allows characterization of biogeochemical systems at a molecular level.
