Cell Biology is a vibrant field of study with significant overlap into areas such as genetics, biochemistry, developmental biology, molecular biology and immunology. Given the strong multi-disciplinary nature of this research, we are pleased that leading cell biologists have chosen to publish some of their best work in PeerJ, a journal which is well placed to highlight 'boundary crossing' work. By doing so this research can now be freely discovered, read and re-used by anyone with an interest in this field, or in any of the fields allied to it.
This collection of 10 articles represents some of the most noteworthy cell biology research which PeerJ has published from launch through May 2015. The list was compiled by examining a range of article level metrics as well as the opinions of the reviewers. The result is a subjective snapshot of the most interesting cell biology research appearing in PeerJ today. The authors of almost all of these articles also chose to make their peer-review history public, making them even more useful to the community.
