sugarcane © Alpha Stock Images - engineering of energycane for optimization of lipid production
In a first in energycane, authors report hyperaccumulation of triacylglycerols in energycane following the overexpression of the lipogenic factors in combination with RNAi suppression of lipid turnover in this multi-gene engineering study towards greater biomass yield.

New Content ItemDevelopment of an efficient veterinary rabies vaccine
In this study, authors demonstrate the development of a scalable rabies vaccine for animal vaccination in and avian suspension cell line in a chemically defined medium.

New Content ItemConditional allele generation in the mouse genome
Authors introduce loxP sites into the mouse genome by electroporation presenting a simple approach to conditional allele generation in complex trait loci in the mouse genome.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites. 

Aims and scope

BMC Biotechnology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the manipulation of biological macromolecules or organisms for use in experimental procedures, cellular and tissue engineering or in the pharmaceutical, agricultural biotechnology and allied industries.

The journal welcomes submissions in these broad areas of research:
Applied immunology 
Cellular, tissue and whole organism biotechnology 
Drug discovery and delivery 
Environmental biotechnology 
Food and nutritional biotechnology 
Genetic engineering
Mathematical modeling and statistics in biology
Methods and technological advances in biotechnology 
Microbial biotechnology 
Plant and agricultural biotechnology 
Systems and synthetic biology
