  2. Your (or your PI’s) laboratory website
  3. Whether you would like to contribute a review or research article
  4. Preliminary topic of the review or research article accompanied by a short summary (max. 250 words)

Reviews and articles will undergo the regular Biological Chemistry peer review process. A pre-selection may be necessary, depending on the number of people interested to contribute. Pre-selection will be based on the information provided in points 1.- 4. and followed by an invitation to submit an article. GBM membership as well as a sole correspondence is a prerequisite for submission.
