From the Editor in Chief
Welcome to the Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine, representing the most detailed and up to date peer reviewed treatment of the molecular and cellular basis of life in existence. Our articles are self-contained, typically 30 printed page treatments of a given topic with usually over 100 references and 10 to 20 figures and tables. This gives the Encyclopedia a unique place among all publications and is thus an authoritative source for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, librarians and researchers in industry and government.
Covering everything from Alzheimer´s Disease to Zebrafish Genome, the Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine is a comprehensive synthesis of modern life sciences and modern medicine. Alongside an Editorial Board of 11 Nobel Prizewinners, the author contributors to this outstanding work include many leaders in the field, such as Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard, Werner Arber, Robert Huber, Stanley Prusiner and Aaron Ciechanover. Further, the selection of each article and author was validated by reviewers from major research centers and each article was then separately peer reviewed. Both the print and on-line Encyclopedia formats are a great success with our global audience of university students, university faculty and researchers. Therefore, we are updating and expanding the on-line publication. Our approach is to focus on newly emerging, cross-cutting subjects such as, first: Systems Biology; and also Epigenetic Regulation and Epigenomics. The chapters covering these subjects in detail are now online and integrated into the whole, over 330 article Encyclopedia, and offered in print. Our team of university professors and researchers is now preparing articles comprehensively covering two additional areas which have experienced major recent progress: Stem Cells and also RNA Regulation. All four of these newly emerging fields will be published in the on-line Encyclopedia as well as offered in print. We are now planning additional projects which, together with the above, will maintain and expand our Online Encyclopedia as the largest, most in depth and up to date, peer reviewed, single source of information on molecular cell biology and molecular medicine.
