Epigenetics 2010 – a new collection from the PLoS journals

We’re delighted to announce Epigenetics 2010, a collection that brings together 20 Research Articles in the area of Epigenetics published during 2010, along with a Research in Translation article and two Primers. The research reflects a range of model systems and organisms, and variously offer phenotypic, mechanistic, and chromatin-based insights. We have also created an online magazine style version of this collection which is nice for browsing the PDFs.

This collection was produced with support from New England Biolabs who have a specialized interest in this field. The PLoS journal editors have sole responsibility for the content of this collection. Here’s what NEB said about the launch of this collection:   “Epigenetics is one of the most exciting and rapidly evolving areas of research in the life sciences”, said Dr. Sriharsa Pradhan, Head of the RNA Biology Division at New England Biolabs. “We are pleased to support PLoS, and to be able to provide researchers with open access to epigenetics-related content”. NEB are long term supporters of PLoS and Open Access (OA) – we are delighted that their Chief Scientific Officer, Sir Richard Roberts, serves on the PLoS Biology editorial board. View a webcast from him about why OA matters recorded for Open Access Day 2008.

Please feel free to share this collection with colleagues–our open-access model of publishing makes it possible to have such a large multidisciplinary cross-journal collection simultaneously available online for unrestricted reuse.
