BMC Medical Genetics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the effects of genetic variation in individuals, families and among populations in relation to human health and disease.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
Giovanni Neri is professor and chair at the Institute of Medical Genetics of the Catholic University School of Medicine in Rome and chief of the Medical Genetics Services of the "A. Gemelli" University Hospital. He is currently serving as President of the Societá Italiana di Genetica Umana and as member of the Scientific Program Committee of the European Society of Human Genetics. He is advisory editor of the American Journal of Medical Genetics. His main research interests are in the field of mental retardation, specifically the fragile X syndrome, and of malformation syndromes, including the RASopathies and overgrowth syndromes.
