Welcome to Life Science Research -ISSN2455-9636

Life Science Research is a monthly journal in print publishing articles on basic, applied and translational research in any discipline of Life Sciences and provides a forum for discussion to academic and industrial researchers. The journal publishes research papers, reviews, case studies, tools and techniques and short communications.

Apart from original articles the journal publishes about break through discoveries in tools and techniques, published in other peer reviewed journals, products and services supporting life science research as reports, news, updates, tutorials, case studies etc.
