Molecular Cell publishes reports of novel results that are of unusual significance and of interest to researchers in the field. The journal focuses on analyses at the molecular level in any area of biology, particularly that of Molecular Biology (including replication, recombination, repair, gene expression, RNA processing, translation, and protein folding, modification, and degradation). We also publish studies of the molecular interactions that underlie basic cellular processes. Some examples are signal transduction pathways, the cell cycle and checkpoints, tumorigenesis, apoptosis, microbial pathogenesis, and genes involved in human diseases. We are also interested in the analyses that are beginning to emerge following the availability of the entire genome sequences of several organisms. The basic criterion for considering such papers is whether the results provide significant novel insights into, or raise provocative questions and hypotheses regarding, an interesting biological question. In addition to primary papers, Molecular Cell features review articles tailored to its broad readership.
