About the Journal

A Community-Based Journal run by Protein Scientists for Protein Scientists

Protein Engineering, Design and Selection (PEDS) publishes research papers and review articles relevant to the engineering, design and selection of proteins for use in biotechnology and therapy, and for understanding fundamental properties of activity, stability, folding, misfolding and disease. With reputable protein scientists as editors and board members, PEDS offers expert, high-quality peer review and a fast turnaround time.
