Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC)

Constructive, fast, and fair

Lead Editors


Erin Goley


Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


Ethan Garner


Harvard University

Scope

This issue will include articles covering a breadth of cell biological research in diverse bacterial and archaeal systems, as well as studies using a wide array of experimental approaches ranging from genetics and imaging to computational approaches and biophysics. Inclusion in this issue offers authors the opportunity to present their work to a broad cell biology audience.

Research Topics

Submissions are welcomed in a variety of areas including:

  • The cytoskeleton, subcellular organization, and organelles
  • Cell cycle control
  • Stress responses and signaling
  • Community structure and function
  • Morphogenesis, growth, and division
  • Organization, segregation, and exchange of genetic material
  • Surface structures and motility
  • Multicellularity and development
  • Interactions with bacteriophages and archaeal viruses

How do you believe MBoC can benefit researchers?

"--------------

There may be a misconception that MBoC is focused solely on eukaryotic cell biology; not true! MBoC provides an ideal venue for those studying bacterial and archaeal cell biology to share their findings with the broader cell biology community, with the benefits of constructive peer review and fast turnaround in an innovative society journal. I hope to see MBoC grow in its position as a journal bacterial cell biologists turn to, both for sharing and finding impactful science.
