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.

The path(way) less traveled in DNA double-strand break repair

BRCA1, a protein that is well-known for its role in hereditary breast cancer, is an important part of the cellular system that repairs double-strand DNA breaks. Now, researchers from Japan have discovered a new way in which ...

This 5,000-year-old man had the earliest known strain of plague

The oldest strain of Yersinia pestis—the bacteria behind the plague that caused the Black Death, which may have killed as much as half of Europe's population in the 1300s—has been found in the remains of a 5,000-year-old ...

SARS-CoV-2 virus can find alternate route to infect cells

Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, scientists identified how SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, gets inside cells to cause infection. All current COVID-19 vaccines and antibody-based therapeutics were designed to disrupt ...

Boost for mouse genetic analysis

To understand what role an individual gene plays, biologists have, for 100 years, been using a trick of nature: While in principle, the genome in all cells of an organism is the same, mutations arise in individual cells. ...

Cohesin opens up for cell division

Scientists at Nagoya University, with colleagues at Kyoto University in Japan, have uncovered a mechanism that allows a protein complex to bind to DNA without impeding some of the important processes of cell division. Their ...

AI model examines virus spread from animals to humans

A new model that applies artificial intelligence to carbohydrates improves the understanding of the infection process and could help predict which viruses are likely to spread from animals to humans. This is reported in a ...

Understanding what drives cell typing

Scientists know that developing cells in a healthy embryo will transform into a variety of cell types that will make up the different organ systems in the human body, a process known as cell differentiation. But they don't ...
