MCP Special Issue: Call for Papers - Chromatin Biology and Epigenetics Special Issue
May 4, 2015 - Molecular & Cellular Proteomics invites submissions for a special issue on chromatin biology and epigenetics.
Epigenetics refers to mechanisms that regulate gene expression in the absence of DNA sequence changes (e.g., histone post-translational modifications [PTMs], DNA modifications, and small non-coding RNAs). In recent years, epigenetic mechanisms have been found to impact a diverse amount of fundamental biological functions and human diseases. In keeping with the broad scope of chromatin and epigenetics, we seek contributions of a diverse nature. Both mini-reviews and original research papers are encouraged.
‘Zoomable’ map of poplar proteins offers new view of bioenergy crop
Jan. 29, 2013 — Researchers seeking to improve production of ethanol from woody crops have a new resource in the form of an extensive molecular map of poplar tree proteins, published by a team from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Populus, a fast-growing perennial tree, holds potential as a bioenergy crop due to its ability to produce large amounts of biomass on non-agricultural land. Now, a study by ORNL scientists with the Department of Energy’s BioEnergy Science Center has provided the most comprehensive look to date at poplar’s proteome, the suite of proteins produced by a plant’s cells. The study is featured on the cover of January’s Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. More...
