Virtual Issue: Membrane Proteins

Issue 2, November 2009: Learning About Proteins That Live in Membranes

Protein Science
began publishing in 1992, not long after we were treated to the first high-resolution membrane protein structure. The photosynthetic reaction center structure finally showed that membrane proteins could be investigated at the atomic level, which induced a ratcheting up of membrane protein work that continues to build steam. Protein Science has been a natural place for reporting these efforts and this virtual issue highlights the breadth of membrane protein subjects that have found a home in the journal.
