The focus of Traffic is Signal transduction (intracellular transport) in health and disease, for both mammalian and non-mammalian biological systems. This is accomplished by concentrating on the cell biology and biochemistry of this phenomenon. Topical coverage includes membrane protein, lipid traffic, intracellular motility, protein transport, membrane protein assembly, membrane protein degradation, antigens, molecule properties related to this science, infectious disease, hereditary diseases, and effects of pathogens.[1]

Subject areas covered by review and original research articles encompass structural biology, cell biology, biochemistry of proteins, molecular biology, morphology, and cell signalling.[1]
