The Biochemical Society and Royal Society of Biology are delighted to announce Emerging Topics in Life Sciences,
coming in 2017.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of life science research, we are delighted to announce Emerging Topics in Life Sciences, a brand new journal coming early 2017 jointly-owned by the Royal Society of Biology and the Biochemical Society.
Each issue will focus on new, or growing, field. Written for an interdisciplinary audience ranging from students and early-career researchers to established scientists who are switching fields or adopting new techniques, each issue will be Guest Edited by an expert in the field allowing researchers to remain up-to-date with recent advances, useful overviews and emerging trends across the life sciences.
Future issues will focus on key topics including: Antibiotics of the future • Computational Biology • Gene editing in agriculture • Mechanobiology •
Biological and molecular adaptations to climate change • Organoids • Microbiomes in health and disease.

The Royal Society of Biology is a single unified voice for biology: advising Government and influencing policy; advancing education and professional development; supporting our members, and engaging and encouraging public interest in the life sciences.The Society represents a diverse membership of individuals, learned societies and other organisations. Individual members include professionals in academia, industry and education, students at all levels, and non-professionals with an interest in biology.
The Biochemical Society promotes the future of molecular biosciences; facilitating the sharing of expertise, supporting the advancement of biochemistry and molecular biology, and raising awareness of their importance in addressing societal grand challenges. We achieve our mission by supporting the next generation of biochemists, fostering connections and providing a platform for collaboration and networking, promoting and sharing knowledge, and promoting the importance of our discipline.
