Genome Biologypaper reports
Genome Biology aims to highlight significant research articles newly published in other journals. From 2003, individual paper reports have been replaced by summaries of articles of interest to Genome Biology readers, taken from those highlighted by Faculty of 1000, a new online literature awareness tool published by BioMed Central. Faculty of 1000 systematically and comprehensively reviews the most interesting recent articles published in the biological sciences on the basis of recommendations of a faculty of over 1,400 selected leading researchers.
