The Royal Society is a Fellowship of the world’s most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. Royal Society Publishing is the publishing division of the Royal Society and publishes four biology journals, in print and online www.royalsocietypublishing.org:
New England Biolabs, Inc. leads the industry in the discovery and production of enzymes for molecular biology applications, including library preparation for next-generation sequencing. NEB’s global reputation for manufacturing products of the highest quality, coupled with best-in-class technical support, makes NEB the first choice for optimized reagents for advanced technologies.
AncestryDNA is a direct to consumer DNA testing service that utilizes some of the latest DNA technology to reveal your ethnic origins and help you find new family connections. By combining the world’s largest online family history resource with cutting-edge DNA science, AncestryDNA has delivered an exciting and easy-to-use new experience for consumers to make discoveries about their family. The detailed results are powered by one of the most comprehensive collections of genetic data and documented family trees from people all over the world. The AncestryDNA science team is continually researching and analyzing this rich data set along with the hundreds-of-thousands of additional research participants to make new discoveries and advancements within the field of population genetics.
BioNano Genomics Irys platform provides unprecedented understanding of whole-genome biology. Genome maps are generated from massively parallel single-molecule visualization of extremely long DNA, and provide the long-range contiguity critical for de novo sequence scaffolding. Structural variants and repeats are directly measured within long “reads” for comprehensive genome analysis.
GigaScience aims to revolutionize data dissemination, organization, understanding, and use. An online open-access open-data journal, we publish ‘big-data’ studies from the entire spectrum of life and biomedical sciences. To achieve our goals, the journal has a novel publication format: one that links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data and provides data analysis tools and cloud-computing resources.
Our scope covers not just ‘omic’ type data and the fields of high-throughput biology currently serviced by large public repositories, but also the growing range of more difficult-to-access data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, cohort data, systems biology and other new types of large-scale sharable data.
Biology Direct serves the life science research community as an open access, peer-reviewed online journal, providing authors and readers with an alternative to the traditional model of peer review. Biology Direct considers original research articles, hypotheses, comments, discovery notes and reviews in subject areas currently identified as those most conducive to the open review approach, primarily those with a significant non-experimental component.
BMC Evolutionary Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of molecular and non-molecular evolution of all organisms, as well as phylogenetics and palaeontology.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
The Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution is an international organization whose goals are to provide facilities for association and communication among molecular evolutionists and to further the goals of molecular evolution, as well as its practitioners and teachers.
In order to accomplish these goals, the Society publishes two peer-reviewed journals, Molecular Biology and Evolution and Genome Biology and Evolution.
The Society sponsors an annual meeting, as well as smaller satellite meetings or workshop on important, focused, and timely topics.
It also confers honors and awards to students and researchers.
