"This is an exciting time for research in the life sciences. Major discoveries providing deep insights into disease mechanisms and the basis for preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are coming at a fast and furious pace. Problems that only a few years ago were beyond technical limits, can now be successfully addressed and 'old' questions can be re-examined with increasingly powerful methods. Open access journals provide the ideal environment for the rapid dissemination and discussion of all aspects of the results of this research."
