Guide for authors
1. Types of contribution
This journal publishes peer reviewed original scientific papers, reviews, short communications, and technique papers in the fields of life sciences. Main interests areas are biotechnology, molecular biology and biochemistry. Reviews will be written by invitation, however, unsolicited reviews will also be considered for publication if prospective authors first contact the Executive Editor to check the suitability of their proposed subject matter.
2. Manuscript preparation
General. Papers should be in English. Manuscripts must be typewritten preferably using word processor package of Microsoft Word, double-spaced with one centimeter margins on all side of white paper.

For original scientific paper, the manuscript should not be more than 25 pages. For mini-reviews and short communications, the manuscript should not be more than 12 pages.
Three sets of original manuscript and three sets of original figures including the disk must be submitted. Paper sent out to the authors for revision should be returned within seven days; otherwise they will be treated as new submissions.
