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.

BMC Molecular Biology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

Section Editor's profile

Stuart MacNeill

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."
