Journal overview

Molecular and Cellular Biology ( MCB ) is devoted to the advancement and dissemination of fundamental knowledge concerning the molecular biology of all eukaryotic cells. MCB seeks technically rigorous, mechanistic studies that provide significant advances in the areas of gene expression and genome organization, cellular morphology and function, molecular metabolism, cellular trafficking, and signal transduction. The journal is also interested in studies that investigate molecular, cellular, and systemic host responses to pathogenic agents in chronic diseases and conditions.

MCB is edited by leading investigators in the field of molecular biology, and decisions are based solely on scientific merit. MCB recognizes that rigorous, in-depth extensions of prior observations contribute in an important way to the advancement of scientific knowledge. We welcome studies that build upon, clarify, or question previous work and thereby move the field forward.
