About this blog

The On Biology blog delivers insights and opinion on the high-quality and thought-provoking research published across BMC’s biology journals, including titles such as Genome Biology and BMC Biology.

Our open access biology journals cover everything from epigenetics to zoology, and from malaria to biotechnology. They provide instant free access to high-quality, peer-reviewed research.

As well as writing about the research we publish, this blog is a place to read discussions on conferences, insights into journal developments, and commentary on news in the field.

Most of our posts are written by staff, but you’ll also hear from our Editorial Board Members and a variety of guest bloggers.
