  • Condensates universe

    A selection of articles that highlights recent progress in understanding the functions of biomolecular condensates in cells, and how their composition and formation are regulated.

  • ECR

    Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology is committed to facilitating training in peer review and to ensuring that everyone involved in our peer-review process is appropriately recognised. We have therefore joined an initiative to allow and encourage established referees to involve one early-career researcher in our peer-review process.
