Nature Reviews Genetics publishes Research Highlights, Comments, Reviews and Perspectives relevant to geneticists and genomicists,  ensuring that the articles we publish reach the widest possible audience. With an impact factor of 40.3 (2016), Nature Reviews Genetics is a highly cited cited peer-reviewed publication in the field of genetics.


Nature Genetics has a current emphasis on the genetic basis for common and complex diseases and on the functional mechanism, architecture and evolution of gene networks, studied by experimental perturbation. With an impact factor of 28 (2016), Nature Genetics is a highly cited peer-reviewed publication in the field of genetics.


Genome Biology covers all areas of biology and biomedicine studied from a genomic and post-genomic perspective. With an impact factor of 11.9 (2016), Genome Biologyis the highest ranked open access journal in the category of genetics.


Genome Research focuses on research that provides novel insights into the genome biology of all organisms, including advances in genomic medicine. Among the topics considered by the journal are genome structure and function, comparative genomics, molecular evolution, genome-scale quantitative and population genetics, proteomics, epigenomics, and systems biology. With an impact factor of 11.9 (2016), Genome Research focuses research papers, or methods and resource reports that provide novel information on technologies or tools that will be of interest to a broad readership.


Trends in Genetics encompasses new areas, such as genomics, epigenetics, and computational genetics, while continuing to cover traditional subjects like transcriptional regulation, population genetics, and chromosome biology. With an impact factor of 11.8 (2016)Trends in Genetics provides researchers and students with high-quality, novel reviews, commentaries, and discussions and, above all, to foster an appreciation for the advances being made on all fronts of genetic research.


Bioinformatics publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles of interest to academic and industrial researchers. Its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology. With an impact factor of 7.3 (2016), Bioinformatics focuses on work that significantly advances our understanding of genetics.


Genome Medicine publishes research and reviews that describe important advances in the application of genetics, genomics and multi-omics to understand, diagnose and treat disease. With an impact factor of 7.1 (2016), Genome Medicine articles are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers.


PLoS Genetics publishes articles on gene discovery and function, population genetics, genome projects, comparative and functional genomics, medical genetics, disease biology, evolution, gene expression, complex traits, chromosome biology, and epigenetics. With an impact factor of 6.1 (2016)PLoS Genetics reflects the full breadth and interdisciplinary nature of this research by publishing outstanding original contributions in all areas of biology.


Current Opinion in Genetics & Development aims to stimulate scientifically grounded, interdisciplinary, multi-scale debate and exchange of ideas. It contains polished, concise and timely reviews and opinions, with particular emphasis on those articles published in the past two years. With an impact factor of 5.8 (2016)Current Opinion in Genetics & Development will serve as an invaluable source of information for researchers, lecturers, teachers, professionals, policy makers and students.
