BMC Medical Genomics is calling for submissions to our Collection on Genomics of neurodevelopmental disorders.
In modern societies, neurodevelopmental disorders are a major medical challenge. These disorders lack clear boundaries in clinical presentation, epidemiology, genomics, and proteomics. Technological innovations for the analysis of genomic data revealed a complex architecture of various types of genetic aberrations with distinct frequencies in the population. Major challenges remain however in the diagnostics and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders. This collection is focussed on novel insights into the genetics and genomics of neurodevelopmental disorders with a view to clinical applications, diagnostics and personalised medicine.
We welcome contributions of clinical research and non-clinical research with focus on experimental data. Bioinformatics studies without primary data will only be considered if they are novel contributions to the field.
