Biochemistry is publishing a number of special issues in 2021/2022 highlighting research at the forefront of the field, and it is with great enthusiasm that the journal invites you to submit your work to be considered for inclusion! These special issues are part of the journal’s efforts to demonstrate that Biochemistry has broadened its scope considerably over the past few years and is a home for a wide range of interdisciplinary work that uses biochemistry tools and techniques or provides biochemical insights.
Targeted Degradation and Autophagy – Submission deadline: May 1, 2022
Led by Guest Editor Josh Paulk of Novartis, this issue will seek to highlight exciting work being done at the intersection of biochemistry, targeted degradation, and autophagy. Biochemistry is thrilled to announce that this will now be a joint special issue co-published in partnership with the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.
Protein Condensates – Submission deadline: March 1, 2022
Biochemistry Executive Editor Hong-Wei Wang of Tsinghua University is leading this issue, which will publish novel and impactful biochemical insights into all aspects of protein condensates.
Gene Editing – Submission deadline: June 1, 2022
This Special Issue on gene editing, led by Guest Editor Amit Choudhary from The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, seeks to highlight research in the revolutionary field of genome engineering; with impact from fundamental biochemistry, to applications in understanding and treating a broad range of diseases.
Microbiome – Submission deadline: May 1, 2022
Led by Guest Editor Emily Balskus of Harvard University, this Special Issue jointly published by Biochemistry and ACS Chemical Biology invites reports of unique biochemical insights into multiple facets of this topic ranging from structural characterization, to understanding biochemical pathways, to impact on health and disease and beyond. Studies on all microbiomes (not only the human microbiome) are welcome.
Protein Engineering – Submission deadline: May 1, 2022
Guest Editor Andrew Ellington of the University of Texas at Austin will be leading this Special Issue publishing the latest developments at the intersection of biochemistry with all aspects and applications of protein engineering.
Manuscripts can be submitted any time in advance of the deadline via Paragon Plus.
