Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the rapidly advancing era of personalized medicine, understanding the genetics and genomics of human population history is of paramount importance. The distribution of human genetic variations among diverse populations is intricately shaped by demographic events and their adaptation to varied environments and distinct lifestyles. The elucidation of population history serves as a crucial foundation for the development of personalized medicine, offering insights into the genetic basis of disease susceptibility and treatment response.

Despite significant advances in the accumulation of human whole-genome sequencing data in the field, there remain gaps in the knowledge, particularly concerning understudied populations within the broader human population and their complicate demographic histories. This Special Issue aims to address these gaps by compiling diverse population genetic studies. By delving into the genetic makeup of various ethnic groups, we seek to unveil the untold stories of human population history, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of genetic diversity and evolution.

The manuscripts included in this Special Issue will explore a wide range of human population genetic studies. Researchers are invited to contribute diverse studies that illuminate the genetic diversity and adaptations within and between populations, providing an essential foundation for the development of personalized medicine strategies that are inclusive and effective across a spectrum of human diversity.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Genes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
