Molecular Cell aims to publish the best research in molecular biology. The journal covers core cellular processes, including:
/// DNA replication, recombination, and repair
/// Chromatin biology and genome organization
/// RNA processing and decay
/// Non-coding RNA function
/// Protein folding, modification, and quality control
/// Signal transduction pathways
/// Cell cycle and checkpoints
/// Cell death
We welcome submissions that:
/// Provide interesting mechanistic insights into the pathways covered by the journal, and that connect these pathways to important biological and disease contexts
/// Use large-scale, systems-level, and high-throughput datasets to derive new biological insights not easily obtained by other approaches
/// Report new reagents, methods, and tools (or significant improvements to existing tools) that are of broad value and utility to scientists working in the fields covered by the journal.
We are particularly interested in papers that answer longstanding questions, open new avenues of research, report unexpected findings, or change the way we think about biological processes.
