Editor's comment: Biomolecular Detection and Quantification...

I've been invited to be a section Editor for Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ).

BDQ is an Elsevier-based, open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to championing excellence in molecular study design, measurement, data analysis and reporting. 


BDQ's Editor's-in-Chief are Stephen Bustin, Jim Huggett, Justin O'Grady, Michael Pfaffl, Carl Witwer and Ron Cook. Quite the line up huh?


My role will be one of attracting, reviewing and shepherding manuscripts relating to BDQ in infectious disease, but particularly related to viruses.

Our two main aims
are:
  1. to provide a forum for discussion and recommendation of guidelines designed to improve the accuracy of molecular measurement, its data analysis and the transparency of its subsequent reporting;
  2. to publish molecular biology based studies that adhere to best practice guidelines, both current and future.
So, if you have any ideas for future articles or would like to publish in our little baby right now (once they become toddlers things get more rowdy), please contact me or one of the other Editors as soon as you can.
