Aims and Scope

Cellular & Molecular Biology Letters is an international journal dedicated to the dissemination of fundamental knowledge in all areas of cellular and molecular biology, certain aspects of biochemistry, biophysics and biotechnology. Regular papers and short communications that contain new and significant information of general interest to workers in these fields are welcome. Sufficient details must be included to enable others to repeat the work. The journal also invites timely reviews and mini reviews. Particularly welcome are papers dealing with:

- Cell cycle and its regulation

- Cell differentiation

- Cell traffic and signalling

- Stem cells

- Gene expression regulation

- Cellular membranes

- Cytoskeleton

- Molecular biotechnology

Why subscribe and read
