The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine.
New discoveries and techniques have led to a wide variety of tools for precision editing of DNA, revolutionizing the field. As these techniques are refined and newer tools are developed, their application will be increasingly widespread and the ethical ramifications of genome editing will be broadly discussed. Original cover design by Peter Harris.
The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine is a PubMed-indexed, open access, quarterly journal edited by Yale medical, graduate, and professional students and peer reviewed by an extensive network of experts in the fields of biology and medicine. The journal aims to showcase outstanding research articles from all areas of biology and medicine, to publish significant case reviews, and to provide both perspectives on personal experiences in medicine and reviews of the current state of biology and medicine.To all interested authors: Starting in June 2015, YJBM began devoting entire issues to its focus topics. This means that all manuscripts in an issue will be related to the focus topic. As a result, we will not be considering off-topic manuscripts. Please keep an eye out for our future focus topics, and thank you for your understanding.
