Cell Reports is an open-access journal from Cell Press that publishes high-quality papers across the entire life sciences spectrum. The primary criterion for publication in Cell Reports, as for all Cell Press journals, is new biological insight. Cell Reports publishes thought-provoking, cutting-edge research, with a focus on a shorter, single-point story, called a Report, in addition to a longer Article format. Cell Reports also publishes Resources, which highlight significant technical advances and/or major informational data sets.

Bacteria uses viral weapon against other bacteria

Bacterial cells use both a virus—traditionally thought to be an enemy—and a prehistoric viral protein to kill other bacteria that competes with it for food according to an international team of researchers who believe ...

Bacteria harness viruses to distinguish friend from foe

Bacterial cells that normally colonize our guts can distinguish themselves from other bacterial species using what's traditionally considered their enemy—a virus. Researchers report April 16 in the journal Cell Reports ...

In mice, feeding time influences the liver's biological clock

The timing of food intake is a major factor driving the rhythmic expression of most genes in the mouse liver, researchers report April 16th in the journal Cell Reports. The findings demonstrate that body-wide signals driven ...

How bugs overcome host defenses

Bacterial pathogens must acquire nutrient metals from the host to survive and cause disease. To counter infection, hosts attempt to starve bacteria by hiding metals away in a process called "nutritional immunity." Bacteria ...

How proteins are assigned to specific transporters

A fundamental cellular mechanism ensures that proteins are transported to the places they are needed in the cells. So-called vesicles are responsible for that transport. Determining their composition has been difficult up ...
