The Year in Cell Biology: 2022
A collection of outstanding articles published in the last year in the Journal of Cell Biology.
While no collection can capture the full breadth of the exciting research advances published over the last 12 months, the following articles showcase the exceptional diversity and quality of work that most interested our readers. From liquid crystalline phasing in lipid droplets to a survey of mammalian axons by cryo-electron microscopy, this collection contains transformative research that exemplifies the strength and impact of the JCB community.
Find the original research articles below and download our magazine with brief summaries and author insights.
This year, as research institutions fully reopen laboratories and conferences slowly return to in-person participation, the pages of JCB were filled with work that was completed under extraordinary challenges of institutional lockdowns. This collection honors the enormous challenges overcome by our authors since the spring of 2020 to publish their highest quality research. Indeed, this collection includes papers on the intracellular events that deliver mRNA from vaccines for translation inside cells as well as the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to interfere with cilia.
Every paper in JCB reflects the time and dedication of our reviewers, for which we are always grateful. We are also grateful to our many readers and, most especially, to the authors who continue to send us their best work. Your efforts make the journal possible. Every issue we publish represents work that the JCB community should be proud of, and we are truly honored to serve this wonderfully diverse and ever-growing community of scholars.
