CALL FOR PAPERS
SPECIAL VIRTUAL ISSUE ON “STATE-OF-THE-ART” EPITOPE DISCOVERY
Journal of Molecular Recognition plans to publish a Special Virtual Issue on the state-of-the-art Epitope Discovery.
Monoclonal antibodies have exquisite target specificity and potential low toxicity, and have become a vibrant, growing area of therapeutics, especially in oncology.
Identifying valid antibody-epitope pairs remains challenging since both the epitope and the antibody can possess undesirable properties that frustrate the intended therapeutic application. Understanding antibody epitopes helps define mechanisms of action, in turn guiding the optimization of therapeutic antibodies.
In the context of biologically-relevant epitope selection, this Special Virtual Issue will summarize recent developments in the experimental characterization of epitopes, as well as exploring theoretical methods for predicting them.
The Virtual Special Issue will be populated with relevant articles as they are published in regular issues, allowing readers access to the papers as they become available, and allowing faster Special Issue publication for authors.
Submissions should be made via ScholarOne.
If you have any questions please contact the Special Issue Editor Yasmina N Abdiche.
Nobel Prize awarded to Journal of Molecular Recognition author Martin Karplus
Congratulations to Martin Karplus, winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for "the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems."
In 2010 Journal of Molecular Recognition published a special issue dedicated to and including the work of Martin Karplus and recognising his immense contributions to the field.
