Research papers and review articles are invited for publication in the ‘Current Trends in Genomic Medicine (CTGM)’, a new genomics journal for advances and developments in all areas of genomic applications in clinical and preventive medicine.
Submissions from any of the following categories are welcome:
- Genomic applications (for example next generation sequencing) in the diagnosis of chromosomal and Mendelian diseases.
- Genomic studies in the clinical evaluation of copy number variation, single nucleotide polymorphisms, mitochondrial DNA mutations/ polymorphisms, epigenetics/ epigenomics and RNA interference.
- Genome wide studies in mapping/ deciphering susceptibility loci for complex medical diseases
- Genomic studies in susceptibility to and/or protection against microbial diseases including new vaccines and pharmaco-therapeutic advances.
- Development and/or evaluation of genomics-based new drugs and clinical trials.
- Evaluation of genomics-based diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
- Development of genomics research protocols applicable to clinical and preventive medicine.
- Development of new laboratory genomic methods for diagnosis and assessment of patient prognosis.
- Developments in stratified and personalized medicine.
- Proceedings of hospital grand rounds or clinico-pathological meetings highlighting genomics-evidence based medical practice.
- Research and developments in any field of genomics with proven or likely implications for medicine, for example, nutrigenomics, toxicogenomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and others.
- Applications of high-throughput genomic technologies in public health, for example screening for diagnosis and susceptibility to disease.
- Ethical, social, financial and legal implications of genomics.
- Socio-cultural aspects of genomic medicine including applications in indigenous and native medical practices and beliefs.
- Genomics and global health, particularly that of developing countries and under-developed nations.
