Insect Molecular Biology

Edited by Zhijian Tu, Mark Paine and Jenn Brisson

Published: Bi-monthly

Aims and Scope

Insect Molecular Biology has been dedicated to providing researchers with the opportunity to publish high quality original research on topics broadly related to insect molecular biology since 1992. IMB is particularly interested in publishing research in insect genomics/genes and proteomics/proteins.

This includes research related to:
• insect gene structure
• control of gene expression
• localisation and function/activity of proteins
• interactions of proteins and ligands/substrates
• effect of mutations on gene/protein function
• evolution of insect genes/genomes, especially where principles relevant to insects in general are established
• molecular population genetics where data are used to identify genes (or regions of genomes) involved in specific adaptations
• gene mapping using molecular tools
• molecular interactions of insects with microorganisms including Wolbachia, symbionts and viruses or other pathogens transmitted by insects

Papers can include large data sets e.g.from micro-array or proteomic experiments or analyses of genome sequences done in silico (subject to the data being placed in the context of hypothesis testing).

For more information on suitable content for IMB see Editorial here.

IMB in also interested in publishing research associated with whole genome sequencing efforts and sequence consortium coordinators are encouraged to contact the Editors for more information.

To allow for rapid, easily available publication of the latest type of insect molecular research IMB offers:
• Open Access via OnlineOpen
• Free Access for group publications (e.g. genome consortia)
• Accommodation of large supplemental data files
• Rapid on-line publication via Early View
• Free on-line colour illustrations
