Editors for Chromosomes and Gene Expression

We aim to publish significant research, performed using genetic, biochemical and structural approaches, that relates to all aspects of the central dogma of biology, specifically DNA replication, repair and recombination, transcription and RNA processing, and translation. We welcome studies in organisms from bacteria to humans that provide new insights into the mechanisms of these processes – including how they are regulated, for example during cell differentiation – and the defects in these processes that contribute to disease. Read the latest research in this subject area.
eLife's peer-review process is changing. From January 2023, eLife will no longer make accept/reject decisions after peer review. Instead, every preprint sent for peer review will be published on the eLife website as a “Reviewed Preprint” that includes an eLife assessment, public reviews, and a response from the authors (if available). When writing the eLife assessment, the editors and reviewers will use a common vocabulary to summarize the significance of the findings and the strength of the evidence reported in the preprint. Read about the new process.

Senior editors

  1. James Manley

    Columbia University, United States

    James Manley received a BS from Columbia University, a PhD from Stony Brook/Cold Spring Harbor Labs, and did postdoctoral work at MIT. He has been in the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University since 1980, was Chair from 1995–2001, and Julian Clarence Levi Professor of Life Sciences since 1995. His research interests center on understanding the mechanisms and regulation of gene expression in eukaryotes, especially with regard to mRNA splicing and 3’ end formation; how these processes are linked to transcription, cell signaling pathways, and maintenance of genomic stability; and how they contribute to cell differentiation and disease. He has authored or coauthored nearly 300 research articles and reviews on these topics, and is an ISI Highly Cited Researcher. Dr. Manley is a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.

  3. K VijayRaghavan

    K VijayRaghavan

    National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India

    Vijay’s research aims to understand motor- and olfactory- circuit assembly: from deciphering how each component is made, interacts, and stabilises into functioning in the animal to allow behaviour in the real world. Related to the development of network function is its maintenance in the mature animal; another aspect of the work in the laboratory addresses how mature neurons and muscles are maintained. The laboratory uses a genetic approach, mainly using the fruit fly but also collaborating with those using mouse and cell-culture. VijayRaghavan is Secretary to the Government of India in the Ministry of Science and Technology in the Department of Biotechnology. He temporarily holds additional charge of the Department of Biotechnology. VijayRaghavan’s research continues at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Bangalore, India, where he is Distinguished Professor. He studied engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. His doctoral work was at TIFR, Mumbai and postdoctoral work at the California Institute of Technology. VijayRaghavan is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences and a Foreign Associate of the European Molecular Biology Organization.
