Journal of Genetic Disorders and Genetic Reports publishes articles on all the fields related to DNA variations. DNA variations can be introduced into the sequence in a number of ways, and it is a normal process. Many genetic variants occur randomly in the replication of DNA during cell division. These alterations are typically corrected by repair machinery in the cell. Environmental agents called mutagens can also cause direct modification of DNA. When mutations are not repaired, they may accumulate in a cell over time, causing problems such as cancer. The journal broadens to individuals all over the world investigating genetic mechanisms in organisms ranging from yeast to man to mice, as well as those in biotechnology and biomedical research, biochemistry, cell biology, evolutionary and population genetics, medical genetics, bioinformatics, and public health research.
