Founded in 2010, BioMolecular Concepts intends to fill a gap in the current literature in biological research by providing a conceptual platform favoring the development of novel ideas and cross-discipline scientific views, with a focus on research resulting in paradigm changes. Reviews cover novel and original concepts arising from recent findings in forefront fields of biology, summaries of research within these fields, and conclusive extensions resulting in new, testable hypotheses. Of special interest are aspects that can promote related biomolecular and biomedical fields, and how they can lead to more biological insight or potential medical applications.
