About Metallomics: Integrated biometal science
Metallomics is a subject that is receiving great attention as a new frontier in the investigation of trace elements in biology and is expected to develop as an interdisciplinary science complementary to genomics and proteomics. This timely new journal covers the research fields related to biometals and is expected to be the core publication for the emerging 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!
Metallomics publishes original research and topical reviews, which provide insight into the role of metals in the life sciences. This includes:
- Chemical speciation, dynamics and kinetics of trace elements in biological systems
- Elemental distributions and concentrations linked to the genome
- 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
- Structural analysis and coregulation of elements within the metallome, including the survey and identification of metalloproteins/enzymes
- Genetic and molecular genetic basis for regulation of metallomes and epigenetic factors relative to the organism
- The interaction of metallodrugs, including chemotherapy agents, with biological organisms, including in clinical use
- Metal exchange between biota and the environment
- Bioimaging and biosensing of metals, including analysis of diagnostic and therapeutic radioactive metals
- Instrumentation and methods demonstrating solutions in the area of metallomics
- Certified reference materials for biological applications
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.
