About the Journal
Journal of Genetic Disorders and Genetic Reports is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal and aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of genetics, Medical Genetics and making them available online freely without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.
Journal of Genetic Disorders and Genetic Reports focuses mainly on topics that include:
- Mutations & Functional Consequences
- Chromosomes, Genes and DNA variations
- Environmental genetics
- Population Genetics and Evolution
- Multifactorial and polygenic (complex) disorders
- Chromosomal Abnormalities: Incidence & Types
- Genetic Counseling & Education
- Chromosomal Syndromes
- Errors in DNA Repair
- Genetic Disorders & Therapeutic Interventions
The journal uses Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is a mode of online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Genetic Disorders and Genetic Reports or outside experts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.
*official 2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of times the 2014 and 2015 published articles cited in 2015 according to Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database with the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X.
Down syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features, and mild to moderate intellectual disability.
Medicine that involves the diagnosis and management of hereditary disorders. It is the study of genetic mechanisms, including the genetic basis of human disease, and the development of genetically based tests and therapies.
Genetic Brain Disorders
A genetic brain disorder is caused by a variation or a mutation in a gene. A variation is a different form of a gene. Genetic brain disorders specifically affect the development and function of the brain.
Autism is neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior. It is a birth defect and it is treatable.
Statistical genetics is a scientific field concerned with the development and application of statistical methods for drawing inferences from genetic data. It is most commonly used in the context of human genetics.
Genetic Epidemiology is the study of the role of genetic factors in determining the health and disease in families and in populations, and interplay of such genetic factors with environmental factors.
Mutations & Functional Consequences
Chromosomes, Genes and DNA variations
Genetic variation refers to differences between members of the same species or those of different species. Genetic variation also refers to diversity in gene frequencies related to heredity of individuals.
Population Genetics and Evolution
It is a field of biology that studies genetic composition of biological population and the changes in the genetic composition that result from the operation of various factors, including natural selection.
Multifactorial and polygenic (complex) disorders
Chromosomal Abnormalities: Incidence & Types
Chromosome abnormality is a missing, extra or irregular portion of chromosomal DNA. There are many types. However, they can be organized into two basic groups. Those are Numerical and structural abnormalities.
Genetic Counseling & Education
Genetic counseling is a communication process, which aims to help individuals, couples and families understand and adapt to the medical, psychological, familial, and reproductive implications of the genetic contributions to specific health conditions.
A syndrome is a set of medical signs and symptoms that are correlated with each other and, often, with a specific disease. General designation for syndromes due to chromosomal aberrations; typically associated with mental retardation and multiple congenital anomalies.
