For more than 30 years, top international researchers have relied on Cell to publish high impact papers that have come to form the foundation of contemporary life science research. Founded by Benjamin Lewin (author of Genes), Cell remains at the forefront of exciting developments in biology, continually redefining the important areas of science with cutting edge papers.
Published biweekly, Cell includes original research articles of exceptional significance in areas including molecular biology, biochemistry, cancer research, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, plant biology, structural biology and virology. Submitted articles are reviewed rapidly for both technical quality and general interest, and, if accepted, are published within eight weeks. Cell features topical minireview and review articles in which noted scientists discuss current progress in all areas of the life sciences. Cell also publishes commentaries, meeting reviews, letters to the editor, and book reviews, as well as Positions Available and listings of Conferences and Courses.
