SC Low Dose ProgramFunded Researchers to Lead a New Biology Journal
Published: June 23, 2008
Posted: July 09, 2008

A new journal, Integrative Biology: Quantitative biosciences from nano to macro, will be launched in January 2009 by RSC Publishing. The Chair of the journal's Editorial Board will be Distinguished Scientist Dr. Mina J. Bissell, Life Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This unique, highly interdisciplinary journal will focus on quantitative multi-scale biology using enabling technologies and tools to exploit the convergence of biology with physics, chemistry, engineering, imaging and informatics. DOE Low Dose Radiation Research Program Chief Scientist, Dr. Mary Helen Barcellos-Hoff, is the journals Scientific Editor. With 12 issues published annually, Integrative Biology will contain a mix of research articles including Full papers, Reviews (Tutorial & Critical), and Perspectives. The latest issue of Integrative Biology will be made freely available to all readers via the website and free institutional access to all 2009/2010 content will be available following a simple registration process.
