Thematic Series

Gene regulation tools for treating genetic diseases and cancers based on CRISPR-related technologies

CRISPR-related technologies have emerged as powerful tools for editing and manipulating genes, and have revolutionized the field of gene therapy. This Collection aims to highlight the latest research and developments in this field, with a focus on the regulatory tools used to treat genetic diseases and cancers.

Molecular mechanisms of cell fate decisions during cellular stress

For this Special Issue of CMBL, we encourage the submission of reviews and primary research articles that aim to understand what shifts the balance between opposing cellular fates during cellular stress.

Collection on Non-coding RNAs

Molecular and cellular biology of noncoding RNA molecules has become one of the fastest growing research fields in science and also in medical practice and technology.  We present this collection of some of our best recent publications on this topic and hope it will inspire you to submit your own work to be included in this collection.

Celebrating 25 Years of Cellular & Molecular Biology Letters

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of CMBL, we have put together this collection of the most highly cited papers published in the journal over the last 25 years. We hope you enjoy reading through the historical ‘scientific journey’ of the journal and can appreciate how much our technology and knowledge has advanced. We look forward to another 25 years!

Invited Papers

The papers in this collection were specially invited by the editors and represent work by leading researchers in their fields, as well the authors of the most cited papers from the previous issues of our journal (CMBL).
