Welcome to European Journal of Human Genetics

Providing insights into human genetics, genomics, molecular, clinical and cytogenetics research   


  • Special Issue on Severity in the Genomic Age
  • We welcome submissions to this special issue on a wide range of topics relevant to the concept of severity, including ethical reflections, its application, its significance and understandings, prioritisation etc.
  • DNA Strands

  • Genomic Testing in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC)
  • We invite submissions for a special issue in EJHG on genomic testing in low and middle income countries. This is an important and timely topic, as genomic testing has the potential to revolutionize healthcare in these regions, but it also presents unique challenges and ethical considerations.
