Molecular Genetics and Genetic Diseases

A section of Biomedicines (ISSN 2227-9059).

Section Information

The section “Molecular Genetics and Genetic Diseases” covers the basic and translational aspects of human genetic diseases and genomics research, from fundamental molecular investigation to preclinical animal models. In particular, this section aims to facilitate the rapid publication of innovative research encompassing the genetic basis of human health and disease, as well as the treatment of genetic disorders, and heritable or acquired cancers. We welcome submissions that apply new and emerging technologies in the fields of genomics, transcriptomics and bioinformatic tools to advance knowledge in human genetic diseases.

Topics within the scope of this section include, but are not limited to:

  • Chromosome organization, structure, and function; chromatin remodeling and dynamics, chromosomal maintenance elements;
  • DNA replication, repair, recombination, mobile DNA, mitochondrial DNA;
  • DNA methylation, histone modification, histone code;
  • RNA biology, transcription and splicing, coding and non-coding RNA analysis, RNA localization, translation and catalysis by RNA;
  • Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression;
  • Genetic toxicology and environmental mutagenesis;
  • Genetics of monogenic diseases and complex diseases; genotype–phenotype relationships;
  • Precision medicine; pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics;
  • Targeted genome editing; gene therapy and delivery systems; genetically-engineered cell therapy
  • RNA and small nucleic acid-based therapeutics;
  • Genetic testing and molecular diagnostics; biomarker development and application; genome-wide association studies;
  • Epigenetic therapy; cancer immunotherapy;
  • Developmental genetics; epigenetics and epigenomics.
