Biotechnology Journal is the new, international resource for both biotechnology researchers and professionals in related disciplines. Fully comprehensive in its scope, the journal publishes strictly peer-reviewed papers covering novel aspects and methods in all areas of biotechnology. Special attention is also paid to the public, legal, ethical and cultural aspects of biotechnological research in the Forum section. Most issues are devoted to a special topic, providing the latest comprehensive information on the most crucial areas of research and technological advances.

Alongside each highlighted topic, the journal contains original papers in the form of research articles, short communications and technical reports, illustrating the latest research results. BTJ welcomes submission of papers in areas including DNA/protein engineering, all -omics fields (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology etc.), bioinformatics (algorithms and modeling), imaging, analytical biotech (sensors/detectors for analytes/macromolecules), plant/agricultural, food or environmental biotechnology, health and therapeutical biotechnology (including antisense/siRNAs, enzymes, peptides ...), regenerative medicine (stem cells, tissue engineering and biomaterials), translational immunology (antibody engineering, xenotransplantation, T-cell therapies), and biosafety or biosecurity.

BTJ promotes a special emphasis on:

    * Systems Biotechnology
    * High-Throughput and Microarray Technologies
    * Synthetic Biology and Metabolic Engineering
    * Nanobiotechnology
    * Translational Biotechnology and Applied Microbiology
    * Methods and Advances
    * Biosafety, biotech ethics, science communication

In particular, BTJ welcomes submissions on
