BMC Molecular Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of DNA and RNA in a cellular context, encompassing investigations of chromatin, replication, recombination, mutation, repair, transcription, translation and RNA processing and function.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.

Section Editor's profile
Stuart MacNeill is currently a Reader in Translational Biology at the University of St Andrews. Dr MacNeill’s research is focused on dissecting the molecular machinery of chromosome DNA replication and genome stability in eukaryotic and archaeal cells using the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, and the genetically-tractable halophilic archaeal organism Haloferax volcanii as model systems. He is also involved in collaborative research on the nuclear DNA replication apparatus of kinetoplastid parasites aimed at identifying novel drug targets.
"BMC Molecular Biology is an excellent platform for rapid, open access publication of high quality research in the molecular biosciences. The ‘DNA replication and genome stability’ section welcomes submissions covering all aspects of replication, repair and recombination, encompassing a wide variety of research methods, from fundamental genetic studies through to protein structure determination."
