American Journal of Medical Genetics: Part A
The American Journal of Medical Genetics publishes 40 issues a year on all
biological and medical aspects of genetic disorders and birth defects for
physicians, medical geneticists, and associated professionals.
The Journal's primary purpose is to report original research in the
following areas: Biochemical Genetics, including newborn screening,
carrier detection, and the metabolic dysplasia and malformation syndromes;
Cancer Genetics and Cancer Cytogenetics, including experimental and
molecular approaches; Clinical Genetics, including descriptions of new
syndromes, new causal and pathogenetic insights into known syndromes,
advances in genetic counseling, nosology, anthropometry, and anthropology,
including dermatoglyphics; Clinical Molecular Genetics, including linkage,
mapping, and gene sequencing; Formal Genetics, including quantitative,
population, and epidemiological genetics; Molecular Cytogenetics,
including delineation of syndromes due to chromosomal aberration;
Neuropsychiatric Genetics, including reports on novel research on the
genetic mechanisms underlying psychiatric and neurological disorders;
Reproductive Genetics, including prenatal diagnosis and the genetics of
prenatal and perinatal death in humans.
Reports on animal models of human genetic disorders, ethical, legal and
social issues, fetal genetic pathology and teratology, Genetic Drift,
historical aspects of medical genetics, and studies of twins and twinning
are appropriate for the Special Features section of the Journal.
Available by subscription only.
