The Journal Genomics & Gene Study is one of the most interdisciplinary fields of science that study of the full genetic complement of an organism (genome). It employs recombinant DNA, DNA sequencing methods, and bioinformatics to sequence, assembles, and analyse the structure and function of genomes.
Genetic engineering is the process by which scientists modify the genome of an organism. Creation of genetically modified organisms requires recombinant DNA. Recombinant DNA is a combination of DNA from different organisms or different locations in a given genome that would not normally be found in nature. In most cases, use of recombinant DNA means that you have added an extra gene to an organism to alter a trait or add a new trait. Some uses of genetic engineering include improving the nutritional quality of food, creating pest-resistant crops, and creating infection-resistant livestock.
The journal defines genomics as "diagnosis, prognosis, prevention and/or treatment of disease and disorders of the mind and body, using approaches informed or enabled by knowledge of the genome and the molecules it encodes." Relevant and high-impact papers that encompass studies of individuals, families, or populations are considered for publication. Emphasis will include coupling detailed phenotype and genome sequencing information, both enabled by new technologies and informatics, to delineate the underlying aetiology of the disease. Clinical recommendations and/or guidelines of how that data should be used in the clinical management of those patients in the study, and others, are also encouraged.
Genomics including genome projects, genome sequencing, and genomic technologies and novel strategies. Simple reports of single-mitochondrial, chloroplast and bacterial strain variant genomes are no longer suitable.
Functional genomics including transcriptional profiling, mRNA analysis, microRNA analysis, and analysis of noncoding and other RNAs using established and newly-emerging technologies (such as digital gene expression). Manuscripts analysing existing sequence data only are no longer suitable unless adding new sequence data or introducing a new algorithm for analysis. The algorithm must be made publicly available through a web page or as code.

Genomic technology and methodology development, with a focus on new and exciting applications with potential for significant impact in the field and emerging technologies
Computational biology, bioinformatics and biostatistics, including integrative methods, network biology, and the development of novel tools and techniques
Modern genetics on a genomic scale, including complex gene studies, population genomics, association studies, structural variation, and gene-environment interactions
Epigenomics, including DNA methylation, histone modification, chromatin structure, imprinting, and chromatin remodeling
Genomic regulatory analysis, including DNA elements, locus control regions, insulators, enhancers, silencers, and mechanisms of gene regulation
Genomic approaches to understanding the mechanism of disease pathogenesis and its relationship to genetic factors, including meta-genomic and the mode and tempo of gene and genome sequence evolution.
Medical Genomics, Personal Genomics, and other applications to human health
Application of Genomic techniques in model organisms that may be of interest to a wide audience.
RNA-seq experiments without three or more biological replicates will not be accepted for differential expression-based articles.
The journal is committed to providing an efficient publishing service to the community. An expert Editorial Advisory Board, independent editors and a streamlined peer-review system enable rapid and fair decision making through to publication. The final manuscripts will also be enhanced by the editorial process making them attractive and accessible to the broad readership of the journal.
