Metallomics publishes original research and topical reviews on global approaches to metals in biology. This journal is the core publication for the metallomics community as they strive to fully understand the role of metals in biological, environmental, and clinical systems.
Metallomics received its first full impact factor of 3.902 in June 2012!
Areas covered in the journal include, but are not limited to:
- Regulation of the uptake, accumulation and metabolism of metals and other trace elements in biological systems
- Physiological and pathological mechanisms related to trace elements in human health and disease
- Elemental distributions and concentrations linked to the genome
- Genetic and molecular genetic basis for regulation of metal speciation and epigenetic factors relative to the organism
- The interaction of metallodrugs, including chemotherapy agents, with biological organisms, including in clinical use
- Chemical speciation, dynamics and kinetics of trace elements in biological systems
- Bioimaging and localization of metals in cells, organelles and systems
- Structural analysis and coregulation of elements within the metallome, including the survey and identification of metalloproteins/enzymes
- Global approaches to metal exchange between biota and the environment
- Novel analytical and instrumental approaches to global metal characterization (concentration, function, flux, dynamics) in biosystems
Readership will be cross-disciplinary and include researchers in academia and industry working in analytical science, biogeochemistry, bioinformatics, biological catalysis, biological environmental science, cell biology, clinical chemistry, environmental health, medicine, metallobiochemistry, microbiology, nutritional chemistry, pharmacology, plant biochemistry and physiology and toxicology.
Metallomics is now indexed in MEDLINE, providing access to articles published the journal to thousands of biomedical researchers and health professionals.
The journal will publish a full mix of primary articles, communications and reviews.
