Genetics Research is a key forum for original research on all aspects of human and animal genetics, reporting key findings on genes, mutations and molecular interactions leading to a better understanding of human disease. The journal focuses on the use of new technologies, such as massive parallel sequencing together with bioinformatics analysis, to produce increasingly detailed views of how genes function in tissues and how these genes perform, individually or collectively, in disease aetiology. The journal publishes original work, review articles, short papers, computational studies, and novel methods and techniques in research covering humans and well-established genetic organisms (such as the mouse and rat). Key subject areas include medical genetics, genomics, human evolutionary and population genetics, bioinformatics, genetics of complex traits, molecular and developmental genetics, Evo-Devo, quantitative and statistical genetics, behavioural genetics and environmental genetics. The breadth and quality of research make the journal an invaluable resource for medical geneticists, molecular biologists, animal breeders, and researchers involved in genetic basis of diseases, evolutionary and developmental studies.
