Biology of Sex Differences


Biology of Sex Differences

Publisher: BioMed Central

Biology of Sex Differences considers manuscripts on all aspects of the effects of sex on biology and disease.

An understanding of the effect of sex on biology and disease requires an interdisciplinary approach in which the interaction of diverse sex-specific factors are studied at all levels, from molecular to the level of biological systems. The development of novel therapies for disease requires a sex-based conceptual framework.

Topical areas include, but are not limited to sex differences in:

* the genome
* epigenetics
* molecular and cell biology
* tissue biology
* physiology
* interaction of tissue systems, in any system including adipose, behavioral, cardiovascular, immune, muscular, neural, renal, and skeletal
* and clinical studies bearing on sex differences in disease or response to therapy.
