About Cardiogenetics


Cardiogenetics (ISSN 2035-8148) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal which provides an advanced forum for studies related to all aspects of cardiogenetics (clinical, molecular, cellular, pharmacological). Cardiogenetics publishes reviews, regular research papers, and short communications.


As an essential resource to general physicians, cardiologists, and geneticists, Cardiogenetics’ primary purpose is to report original research in the following areas:

- Clinical and molecular aspects of inherited heart diseases (IHDs): genotype–phenotype findings; follow-up data from IHD clinics; clinical findings from large and informative families with IHDs; studies on molecular imaging in IHDs;

- Clinical and molecular aspects of rare diseases: clinical imaging and molecular findings of rare diseases (RDs) with cardiovascular involvement;

- Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics: studies involving new drugs or well-known therapies in IHDs, RDs, and cardiovascular medicine; genetic/genomic profile and response to therapies;

- Stem cell studies: clinical trials and experimental studies involving cell studies/cell therapy;

- Diagnostic methods including sequencing studies;

- Bioinformatics and statistical methods in genetics;

- Personalized medicine and therapies (gene therapy and gene editing);

- Molecular biology and pathophysiology of genetic and genomic diseases: biology of cell, pathways and systems, epigenetics and gene regulation, biology and pathophysiology of specific genes and non-coding DNA;

- Polygenic/multifactorial disorders.

A space will be given to negative studies in cardiogenetics: this space will be dedicated to clinical, molecular, cellular, pharmacological studies with a solid scientific background, but leading to negative results.
