HGNC updates

Updates from the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) relevant to Human Genomics readers.

Aims and scope

Human Genomics is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that focuses on the application of genomic analysis in all aspects of human health and disease, as well as genomic analysis of drug efficacy and safety, and comparative genomics.

Guest Editors:
Xiaoming Shi, MD/PhD, Director of the National Institute of Environmental Health (NIEH), Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC)
Nikolaos S. Thomaidis, Professor of Analytical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens

Over the past several decades, genomic analyses (e.g., genome-wide association studies, genome-wide sequencing, functional genomics, epigenomics, and biochemical networks) have enabled unparalleled elucidation of genotype-phenotype associations, which greatly improve our understanding of the pathogenesis of human diseases.
