Marine Biotechnology

ISSN: 1436-2228 (Print) 1436-2236 (Online)


Marine Biotechnology welcomes high-quality research papers presenting novel data on the biotechnology of aquatic organisms.  The journal publishes high quality papers in the areas of molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, cell biology, and biochemistry, and particularly encourages submissions of papers related to genome biology such as linkage mapping, large-scale gene discoveries, QTL analysis, physical mapping, and comparative and functional genome analysis. Papers on technological development and marine natural products should demonstrate innovation and novel applications.Please note: Marine Biotechnology will not consider papers which deal solely with cDNA cloning, gene cloning, cloning and characterizing of microsatellites, species identification using molecular markers, or EST papers with small collections (less than 2000), or mapping papers with a small number of markers, or papers describing development of cell lines, unless the papers also deal with functionality of genes, provide information on an important biological problem or are related to genome biology.

Marine Biotechnology is the official journal of:The European Society for Marine Biotechnology ( Japanese Society for Marine Biotechnology (

We are pleased to announce that Marine Biotechnology is now available Online First.
The Online First service lets users access peer reviewed articles well before print publication. These articles are searchable and citeable by their DOI (Digital Object Identifier) and hence significantly reduce the time it takes for critical discoveries to reach the research community.
