Genomes and Epigenomes

Rebecca Furlong: human genetics and evolutionary genomics. 

Anne Mirabella: genome instability, DNA repair and replication.

Carolina Perdigoto: chromatin, epigenetics and transcription.

Katie Ridd: cancer genomics and cancer epigenomics.

Welcome to the Nature Communications Editors’ Highlights webpage on genomes and epigenomes. Each month our editors select a small number of Articles recently published in Nature Communications that they believe are particularly interesting or important.

The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the area of genomes and epigenomes at Nature Communications.

Make sure to check the Editors' Highlights page each month for new featured articles.

Rebecca Furlong (@becky_furlong)

Becky has a background in gene family and genome evolution. As an editor she is interested in any topic where genetic technologies can be applied, ranging from human disease to conservation biology. Becky handles a wide variety of papers with a particular focus on evolutionary genomics and molecular evolution.

Anne Mirabella

Anne has a background in chromatin biology in the context of DNA replication. As an editor she is interested in all aspects of molecular biology, especially understanding how cells regulate to maintain their genomic stability. Anne handles manuscripts in molecular biology, genome instability, DNA replication and DNA damage and repair.

Carolina Perdigoto (@CytoChromaC)

Carolina has a background in genetics and epigenetics with a focus on understanding how the genome is organised and gene function regulated. As an editor, her interests span the breadth of molecular biology and genomics, from the nucleotides to the genomic landscape, handling manuscripts in the areas of transcription, chromatin biology, epigenetics and epigenomics.

Katie Ridd (@katieridd)

Katie has a background in cancer cell biology and genetics, and previously focused on skin cancer. As an editor her interests span all of cancer research including therapy, immunology, metabolism, molecular biology and cell biology. Katie handles an array of papers but has a particular focus on cancer genomics and imaging.
