Genes, an international, peer-reviewed open access journal which provides an advanced forum for studies related to genes, genetics and genomics. It publishes reviews, research articles, communications and technical notes. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and/or methodical details must be provided.

There are, in addition, unique features of this journal:

* manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be particularly welcomed
* electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure - if unable to be published in a normal way - can be deposited as supplementary material

This journal covers all topics related to genes, genetics and genomics.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* DNA; RNA; chromosomes; reproduction; heredity; genealogy; interaction of multiple genes; genetic code; pseudogene; gene structure; gene expression; recombination and linkage; genetic mapping; inheritance; nature versus nurture; gene regulation; genetic change; population genetics; conservation genetics; phylogenomics; phylogenetics; cloning; genetically modified organisms; human genetics; comparative genomics; behavioural genetics; medical genetics; gene therapy; genome projects; personal genomics; copy number variation; public health genomics; genetic diversity; transcriptional profiling; microRNA analysis; mRNA analysis; analysis of noncoding and other RNAs
* Research Techniques: molecular markers; next generation sequencing; model organisms; microarrays; bioinformatics
