Insights from Genome Editing

Guest Editors: Jin-Soo Kim and Fyodor Urnov

InsightsfromGenomeEditingSIPageResizedGenome Biology is currently inviting submissions for our upcoming special issue on Insights from Genome Editing.

The issue, which is planned for the second half of 2018, will be guest edited by Professor Jin-Soo Kim, Seoul National University, South Korea and Professor Fyodor Urnov, Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences, USA.

 Genome editing-based technology not only provides efficient tools for editing the genome in cell lines, model organisms and agriculturally important species, but has also found application in imaging genome compartments, regulation of gene expression and as an additional means of experimental validation. Advances in genome editing are advancing genome studies at an unprecedented pace.

Genome Biology will highlight insights into these fields that use genome editing methods with a special issue that showcases exciting findings in all areas of life sciences.

The special issue will accept Research and Method manuscript submissions presenting outstanding contributions that highlight the biological insights in question, including (but not limited to) in the areas of:

-Agricultural breeding

-Disease model generation

-Genome engineering

-Genome labeling


-Targeted gene expression and network modulation

-Therapeutic target discovery

Submission deadline: 18 May 2018

Please use the online submission system and indicate in your covering letter that you would like the manuscript to be considered for the ‘Insights from Genome Editing’ special issue. If you would like to inquire about the suitability of a manuscript for consideration, please email a pre-submission inquiry to
