In the first of a series of blog posts on structural biology, we present research featured recently in BMC Molecular and Cell Biology investigating new ways to understand how lipids reach their eventual location inside cells to form membranes.
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 both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell and molecular biology, including structural and functional cell biology, DNA and RNA in a cellular context and 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 currently looking for new Associate Editors to join our team of academic editors, assessing manuscripts in the field of molecular and cell biology. We are particularly interested in hearing from researchers specializing in archaeal and prokaryote biology, protein folding or structure and function of macromolecules but all applications will be considered.

Matthias Falk, PhD is Professor for Cell Biology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University, USA. His research investigates the biosynthesis, structure and function of gap junctions, plasma membrane channels that provide direct cell-to-cell communication and physical cell-cell adhesion.
