As we enter the Year of the Rat, MBE celebrates the Lunar New Year with a collection of recent manuscripts presenting discoveries based on rats and mice.
Every year MBE looks at the papers published in the journal having a powerful effect on the community (as measured by citations accrued). In 2020 we highlight a series of "Emerging Classics" published between 2015 and 2018.
2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the Neutral Theory. This special collection from MBE featured newly commissioned papers on the subject, as well as previously published articles in the journal.
This virtual issue of MBE features some of the work discussed at the December 2016 National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS, Bangalore, India) symposium on the genetics of adaptation, as well as invited contributions from a selection of colleagues in the wider community.
Molecular Evolution and Disease
This virtual issue from MBE features a collection of articles on the subject of molecular evolution and disease.
Fast Track Articles
Manuscripts receiving the highest enthusiasm from MBE’s reviewers and editors are fast tracked for publication. Upon their final acceptance these papers will be published online within one week and appear in the next scheduled issue of the journal. This policy reflects the journal’s intention to quickly print all manuscripts judged to be the most innovative and impactful during the peer review process.
Fast Track archive
