Special section on Epigenomics

The special section on epigenomics in the July 2013 issue of Journal of Human Genetics features review and original articles by top-level epigenetic researchers covers various topics of epigenetic research, both basic and clinical.

Pharmacogenomics: Recent advances and future directions

The Journal of Human Genetics is pleased to present its first "special section" in the June issue of the journal. These special sections are designed to bring together collections of papers on specific topics of interest; guest editors curate the section, inviting contributions from leading researchers in the field. The topic of the first special section is pharmacogenomics, featuring eight articles on the current state of pharmacogenomics research and its implementation in the clinic.

Biomedical Genomics Series - Cancer

The Journal of Human Genetics is delighted to present the latest from the Series on Biomedical Genomics, a Web Focus on Cancer. The Focus includes reports covering genetic research into identifying risk and associations with Breast Cancer, lung squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and cervical cancer in different populations, such as Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Amerindian.
