Transgenic Research focusses on transgenic and genome edited higher organisms. Manuscripts emphasizing biotechnological applications are strongly encouraged. Intellectual property, ethical issues, societal impact and regulatory aspects also fall within the scope of the journal. Transgenic Research aims to bridge the gap between fundamental and applied science in molecular biology and biotechnology for the plant and animal academic and associated industry communities.

  • A valuable forum for ideas in all areas of transgenic and genome editing technology
  • Covers research in transgenic and genome edited higher organisms
  • The only journal to comprehensively cover animal and plant transgenic technology

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.


    Please note that all content related to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 are accumulated and currently free to access here.
