BioTechniques brings readers news features and peer-reviewed research articles focusing on the latest in methods and techniques for lab scientists. From informative Tech News features to primary research articles that can have an immediate impact in the lab, each issue has something for everyone.
In 2013, BioTechniques will publish four special Focus Sections celebrating 30 Years of BioTechniques:
- The Evolution of Biochemical Methods (Examines the evolution of biochemical methods (protein analysis techniques; metabolite analysis) from the pages of BioTechniques over the last three decades) – March
- The Rise and Development of PCR (PCR revolutionized molecular biology. During those years, BioTechniques has been there, describing novel PCR methods and techniques that expanded the impact of PCR. This section will highlight some of those advances, and current PCR uses) – July
- Sequencing, from Single Genes to Whole Genomes and Beyond (In 30 years, sequencing has gone from analyzing small stretches of DNA to whole human genomes. This section will take a look back at the last 30 years of DNA sequencing methods – from Sanger to nanopores and all the methodological advances in between)
- Imaging a Small Cellular World (Microscopy is a key technique in cell and molecular biology. Today there is move toward imaging single biomolecules – how they move and interact. This section will explore
advances in microscopy that have led us to today’s imaging applications)
96% of subscribers rate the quality and usefulness of BioTechniques as good or better.
