I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Sonja-Verena Albers

Researching the assembly of cell surface appendages in archaea and their role in adhesion and biofilm formation. The model organism we study is the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius. We use genetic approaches to identify systems in Sulfolobus that are involved in the assembly of cell surface appendages and biochemically characterize the subunits and their interplay in the assembly process.

Ludmil B Alexandrov

I am an enthusiastic early career scientist with an interdisciplinary training and a strong computational background. My interests lie in leveraging the information hidden in large-scale omics data for better understanding of the mutational processes causing human cancer, for identifying potential cancer prevention strategies, and for developing novel approaches for targeted cancer treatment.

Maria Almuedo-Castillo

I obtained the Biology degree from the University of Sevilla in June 2008. For my PhD, I then joined Drs. Saló and Adell lab at the Genetics Department of the UB. Using the planarian S. mediterranea due to its amazing regenerative abilities, I demonstrated the role of specific signaling pathways in processes that allow regeneration of a proportioned body plan. I graduated with honors in Genetics in July 2014 and for my postdoctorate I decided to join Dr. Müller laboratory at the Max Planck Institute of Tübingen (Germany) in October 2014, to get an interdisciplinary training in Systems Biology and learn about Biophysics and computer modeling. In June 2015 I was awarded with an EMBO long-term postdoctoral fellowship. I studied how tissue patterns scale with embryo size using a quantitative biophysical in vivo approach. We described how embryos adjust tissue proportions to the changing size of their bodies. In June 2018 I decided to come back home and develop my independent research career in Sevilla (Spain), where I am currently working as an associate researcher at CABD (CSIC/UPO/JA). In February 2019 I obtained a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowship and in June 2019, a Junior Leader grant from Fundación Social La Caixa. Here I want to implement all my interdisciplinary acquired knowledge to study the complex formation of organs from a mechanical and patterning comprehensive perspective, using as an experimental paradigm the formation of the vertebrate eye.
