With a circulation of around 15,000 copies, BIOspektrum is the best-selling specialist journal for molecular biology in the German-speaking world. It is the publication organ of the Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie (GBM), the Vereinigung für Allgemeine und Angewandte Mikrobiologie (VAAM), the Gesellschaft für Genetik (GfG) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Experimentelle und Klinische Pharmakologie und Toxikologie (DGPT), whose members automatically receive the journal. BIOspektrum is published seven times a year and provides an overview of new developments in the biosciences as well as the latest news from business, politics and the VAAM. Numerous service sections round off the wide range of information offered by BIOspektrum, and as a member of the VAAM you will receive an access code from the office which enables online access to all BIOspektren.
