Editors for Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics

We aim to publish studies that advance our understanding of molecular mechanisms in biology, using experimental and computational approaches to provide quantitative insights. We also welcome studies describing structure determination by methods including cryoEM, crystallography and NMR, the investigation of macromolecular dynamics, the evolution of function and specificity in molecular systems, and the application of advanced biophysical methods to capture molecules in action.
