A message for 2020

The Journal of Human Genetics published 155 papers in 2019. We prepared a special issue describing “Long-read sequencing in human genetics” in 2019, which was published in January 2020. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the guest editor, Professor Yutaka Suzuki, and all the contributors for their great work. I hope the special issue will attract attention to a broad readership.

In 2020, we are planning a special issue dealing with new trends in GWAS. I look forward to it and also to receiving more exciting manuscripts for the Journal of Human Genetics from all over the world.

Acknowledgements The Editor-in-Chief, on behalf of the Journal of Human Genetics Editorial Board and the Japan Society of Human Genetics, gratefully acknowledge the generous support from peer reviewers in carefully evaluating manuscripts under consideration.
