    Paul Flicek and Graham Ritchie review computational approaches to functionally annotating the ‘variome’. Such approaches are needed as the number of identified variants in genomic sequences grows.

News and events

Human Genomics has now launched and is accepting submissions

Previously published by Henry Stewart Publications, Human Genomics has now launched and is accepting submissions under BioMed Central's open access platform. Edited by Prof. Vasilis Vasiliou, the journal aims to facilitate rapid publication and stimulate discussion within the human genomic field. The journal welcomes manuscripts relating to the application of genomic analysis in the understanding, treatment and diagnosis of complex and Mendelian diseases, as well as reports of the genomic analysis of adverse drug reactions, drug efficacy and safety.

Submit your manuscript online, and receive updates on this innovative journal's activities and publications by signing up for alerts.
