Featured Article: 1029 genomes of self-declared healthy individuals from India reveal prevalent and clinically relevant cardiac ion channelopathy variants

The prevalence and genetic spectrum of cardiac channelopathies exhibit population-specific differences. In this article, the authors used the IndiGenomes dataset to explore the spectrum of cardiac channelopathy-associated variations in India, which is characterized by a genetically diverse population and is largely understudied in the context of these disorders. The results indicate that the genotype may be present in nearly 1% of the population of India, which represents a large number of people and a potential public health concern.

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.
