‘Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics’ is an open-access online journal publishing original research, meta analyses, reviews, case commentaries and updates on recent development focusing on genetic and genomic aspects of wide range of cardiovascular conditions. The journal particularly focuses on delineation of the clinical phenotypes, new genes and variants, genotype-phenotype correlations, basic and clinically applied molecular genetics, next generation sequencing and new therapeutic developments (drugs & devices). The original cardiovascular research will highlight the omics: proteomics, metabolomics, functional genomics and systems biology – as well as clinical trials in the burgeoning field of pharmacogenomics related to cardiovascular medicine. The journal also features current and comprehensive reviews in the areas of recent advances in cardiovascular development, Mendelian cardiovascular conditions, new diagnostic and therapeutic progress, and controversies in cardiovascular genetics. The journal shall also include clinical case reports and studies, book reviews, and letters to the editor.

The following categories (not limited) of papers and articles are published in Cardiovascular Genetics & Genomics:

  • Cardiovascular development; congenital heart disease
  • Inherited cardiomyopathy-Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), Dilated cardiomyopathy, Arryhthmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC)
  • Cardiovascular genes- Sarcomere, cytoskeletal, junctional, ion channel; ciliopathies, RAS/MAPK, mitochondrial and others
  • Inherited arrhythmia- Long QT Syndrome (LQTS); Short QT Syndrome
  • Brugada syndrome, Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT)
  • Inherited vascular/ connective diseases: Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and other connective tissue genetic diseases
