Chromatin structure in cancer

In this new Review Wang et al. describe recent insights into altered genome architecture in human cancer, highlighting multiple pathways that disrupt chromatin structure and contribute to tumorgenesis.


Aims and scope

BMC Molecular and Cell Biology, formerly known as BMC Cell Biology, is an open access journal that considers articles on all aspects of cellular and molecular biology in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. The journal considers studies on functional cell biology, molecular mechanisms of transcription and translation, biochemistry, as well as research using both the experimental and theoretical aspects of physics to study biological processes and investigations into the structure of biological macromolecules.

We are recruiting!

We are currently looking for new Editorial Board Members to join our team of academic editors, assessing manuscripts in the field of molecular and cell biology.
