Molecular Biology and Evolution is a monthly journal owned and edited by The Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution and published by Oxford University Press. It publishes work in the intersection of molecular biology and evolutionary biology. The founding editors were Walter Fitch and Masatoshi Nei; the present editor-in-chief is Marcy Uyenoyama.

In 2008, its impact factor was 7.3, up from 6.4 in 2007, ranking 4th of the 39 journals in the "Evolutionary Biology" category. By 2010, its impact factor was down to 5.51.[1]

In 2011, Molecular Biology and Evolution was criticized in The Guardian for hiding a retraction notice behind a paywall (charging readers $32 for the sentence "This article has been permanently retracted from publication by the author").[2]
