Once again, Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Diane Lidke, and Alex Mogilner will serve as editors for the publication that builds upon the successes of five previous editions on the subject published in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2019. Researchers whose work crosses disciplines will not want to miss this opportunity to reach a wide audience, including the 15,000 recipients of the electronic journal’s table of contents.

MBoC invites submission of research articles and brief reports, including methods papers, in the following areas:

  • Quantitative imaging
  • Superresolution imaging techniques and their applications
  • Single-molecule biology
  • Biophysical properties of cells and cell structures
  • Computational and mathematical modeling
  • Systems studies of cell signaling and complex physiological processes
  • Innovative physical or computational approaches to cell biological problems
  • Big data methods and applications

Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC) is an online journal published twice monthly and owned by the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB). Unredacted accepted manuscripts are freely accessible immediately through MBoC In Press. Final published versions are freely accessible two months after publication at MBoC is also available online through PubMed Central, sponsored by the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
