This issue contains articles around the theme “Using electrons and radical chemistry to characterize biological molecules.” The eight articles cover the following topics: use of electron detachment dissociation or electron transfer dissociation to character- ize modifications of biomolecules; development of new solution-phase or gas-phase methods to characterize peptides; top-down sequencing using electron transfer dissociation or electron capture dissociation for protein characterization; and use of high-resolution native top-down mass spectrometry to characterize protein complexes. I thank all the authors and reviewers for helping this issue come to fruition. For readers to learn more about Kicki’s background and motivations, an Binterview^ format has been adopted. Interview with Kristina Håkansson: Q: Many of us were inspired to pursue science by our high school teachers. What were your chemistry teachers like at Journal of The American Society for Mass Spectrometry Springer Journals
