Journal of Biology is the premier biology journal published by BioMed Central, the publisher of Genome Biology and the BMC series. Journal of Biology publishes research articles of exceptional interest, with associated commentary, and provides immediate free access to all articles online. Journal of Biology is an international journal that publishes biological research articles of exceptional interest, together with associated commentary. Original research articles that are accepted for publication are published in full on the web within two weeks, are immediately made freely available to all. Articles from the full spectrum of biology are appropriate for consideration, provided they are of outstanding interest and importance. (As a guide, the journal will consider articles of a standard similar to those published in Nature, Science or Cell.)
Genome Biology publishes articles from the full spectrum of biology. Subjects covered include any aspect of molecular, cellular, organismal or population biology studied from a genomic perspective, as well as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, genomic methods (including structure prediction), computational biology, sequence analysis (including large-scale and cross-genome analyses), comparative biology and evolution.
Genome Medicine is an online peer-reviewed journal which publishes open access research articles of outstanding quality in all areas of medicine studied from a genomic or post-genomic perspective. The journal has a special focus on the latest technologies and findings that have an impact on the understanding and management of human health and disease.

BMC Bioinformatics is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of computational methods used in the analysis and annotation of sequences and structures, as well as all other areas of computational biology. BMC Bioinformatics (ISSN 1471-2105) is indexed/tracked/covered by PubMed, MEDLINE, BIOSIS, CAS, Scopus, EMBASE, Thomson Reuters (ISI) and Google Scholar.
Biology Direct aims to publish original research articles, hypotheses, and reviews from the full spectrum of biology; the first subject areas launched are Genomics, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and Immunology and Mathematical Biology. Further subject areas will be launched from time to time until the full spectrum of biology is covered. Subjects covered will include any aspect of molecular, cellular, organismal or population biology, as well as methods, theoretical and computational biology, comparative biology, and evolution.
Biology Direct considers the following types of articles:
- Research: reports of data from original research.
- Reviews: comprehensive, authoritative, descriptions of any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually written by opinion leaders that have been invited by the Editorial Board.
- Hypotheses: short articles presenting an untested original hypothesis backed solely by previously published results rather than any new evidence.
- Comment: short, narrowly focused articles of contemporary interest, usually commissioned by the journal (these are not mini-reviews).
- Discovery notes: brief reports of specific discoveries made by computational analysis of nucleic acid and/or protein sequences, structures or other data, with novel observations and conclusions about the function, organization, or evolution of proteins, genes or genomes.
Epigenetics & Chromatin welcomes all high-quality articles that provide novel insights into epigenetic inheritance and chromatin-based interactions. Topics include, but are not limited to, gene silencing and imprinting, cellular reprogramming, nucleosome modification assembly and remodeling, DNA methylation, chromatin structure and dynamics, chromosomal maintenance elements, dosage compensation, interchromosomal interactions and prion inheritance.
Proteome Science is ready to receive manuscripts based on all aspects of functional and structural proteomics.
BioData Mining, is an open access, peer reviewed, online journal encompassing research on all aspects of data mining applied to high-dimensional biological and biomedical data, focusing on computational aspects of knowledge discovery from large-scale genetic, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data.
Topical areas include, but are not limited to:
- Development, evaluation, and application of novel data mining and machine learning algorithms.
- Adaptation, evaluation, and application of traditional data mining and machine learning algorithms.
- Open-source software for the application of data mining and machine learning algorithms.
- Design, development and integration of databases, software and web services for the storage, management, retrieval, and analysis of data from large scale studies.
- Pre-processing, post-processing, modeling, and interpretation of data mining and machine learning results for biological interpretation and knowledge discovery.
