Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine is a peer-reviewed journal for rapid dissemination of quality research related to the dynamically developing areas of human, molecular and medical genetics. The journal publishes original research articles covering findings in phenotypic, molecular, biological, and genomic aspects of genomic variation, inherited disorders and birth defects. The broad publishing spectrum of Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine includes rare and common disorders from diagnosis to treatment. Examples of appropriate articles include reports of novel disease genes, functional studies of genetic variants, in-depth genotype-phenotype studies, genomic analysis of inherited disorders, molecular diagnostic methods, medical bioinformatics, ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI), and approaches to clinical diagnosis. Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine provides a scientific home for next generation sequencing studies of rare and common disorders, which will make research in this fascinating area easily and rapidly accessible to the scientific community. This will serve as the basis for translating next generation sequencing studies into individualized diagnostics and therapeutics, for day-to-day medical care.
Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine publishes original research articles, reviews, and research methods papers, along with invited editorials and commentaries. Original research papers must report well-conducted research with conclusions supported by the data presented.
Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine is a Wiley Open Access journal, one of a series of peer reviewed titles publishing quality research with speed and efficiency. For further information visit the Wiley Open Access website.

Peer review policy
Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine maintains the highest standards of peer review while increasing the efficiency of the process. All research articles published in the journal will undergo full peer review. We will do our utmost to judge research objectively on its own merits and to avoid favoring research, for example, from particular institutions, countries, or regions. Key characteristics of the journal’s review process are:
• All research articles submitted directly to the Journal are initially evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief, and articles found appropriate for the Journal will be reviewed by at least two suitably qualified experts.
• All submissions transferred to the Journal from partnering journals are evaluated by the Editors and if considered appropriate, will also be sent out for peer review by at least two qualified experts.
• All publication decisions are made by the Editor-in-Chief on the basis of the reviews provided.
• Members of the editorial board lend insight, advice and guidance to
