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.
