Mobile DNA is an online, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes articles providing novel insights into DNA rearrangements, ranging from transposition and other types of recombination mechanisms to patterns and processes of mobile element and host genome evolution.

Impact factor news
Mobile DNA is now being tracked by Thomson Reuters (ISI). We hope to receive our first official impact factor in June 2013. Keep checking the website for further updates.
Nancy L Craig is currently a Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an Investigator for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Professor Craig is a geneticist whose research interests include the mechanisms and control of transpositions and site-specific recombinations, protein – DNA interactions, and the molecular genetics of bacteria.
Thomas Eickbush is currently a Professor and Chair of the Department of Biology at the University of Rochester, New York.
“I am delighted to be involved in the launch of a new journal devoted to the field of mobile DNA. The genomes of most organisms are filled with these relentless elements, and the means used to regulate their activity are fundamental to all aspects of information flow from DNA to RNA to protein. Whether your interests are how the mobile elements or how the hosts survives the onslaught, this journal can serve as an appropriate venue.”
Daniel Voytas is currently the Director of the Center for Genome Engineering at the University of Minnesota.
“Mobile DNA provides a unique forum for researchers to communicate their latest findings on mobile elements – from mechanistic insights to evolutionary impacts. I’m excited that our discipline finally has its own journal!”
