Message from the Editor


Protein Science has always been interested not only in results in protein science research, but also in better ways to obtain these results. To make this clearer we are designating a new category of manuscript, designated “Methods and Applications”. Reports in this section will describe new methods and approaches that are expected to have broad applicability in understanding various aspects of protein structure and function. They could, for example, describe methods related to protein engineering or protein purification or protein characterization or protein folding, or methods for structure determination and analysis by a variety of different techniques. The main requirement is that the work be novel and of broad applicability to protein science. The utility of the new method should be illustrated by specific examples. If the work includes the use of novel computational procedures then the related software should be available from a specified website or sufficient information about the new algorithm should be provided so that the results reported could be reproduced by an expert in the field. The format of the manuscripts will be the same as for full-length articles. We warmly encourage authors to make contributions to the journal in this area.
