Featured article:A novel knowledge-derived data potentizing method revealed unique liver cancer-associated genetic variants

Over the past decade, next-generation sequencing (NGS) has led to advances in the detection of disease-associated genetic variants and genome-wide profiling of expressed sequences by enabling the analyses of multiple regions of a genome in a single format. NGS has also led to the development of personalized and precision medicine in clinical practice.  In this study, Sultana et al. explore a panel of previously unaddressed liver cancer-associated variants using a novel data prioritizing rationale.  This method of data curing could lead to more effective screening of global genetic variants related to disease onset, progression, and remission since the raw NGS data reports numerous non-specific mutations simply due to naturally occurring genetic variation.

HGNC updates

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

Previous content

Human Genomics launched with BioMed Central in July 2012, transferring from its previous publisher Henry Stewart Publications. All back content is now available in the archive.

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.

Call for Papers: Public Health Genomics

Guest Editors: George P Patrinos, University of Patras, Greece; Hongyu Zhao, Yale University, USA

Papers are invited which address current issues in human public health genomics, such as genomic surveillance of disease, genetic risk prediction, individual genome interpretation, gene-environment interactions, genetic diversity of vector-borne disease, vaccination and vaccine-based approaches against pathogens data sharing, economic evaluation in genomic medicine, and the role of big data and artificial intelligence on the development of translational tools and services and the overall future of public health.

Submission Deadline: March 2020
