Aims and Scope: Somatic Cell and Molecular Genetics

Somatic Cell and Molecular Genetics, publishes reports of original research in the fields of cellular and molecular genetics of higher eukaryotic systems. The focus is on studies with animal or plant cells in the following areas: gene expression and regulation, gene transfer into cultured cells or embryos, gene isolation, gene mapping, gene therapy, molecular biology of inherited diseases, recombination, mutation, chromosome replication, and the genetics of subcellular organelles. Studies on related topics-such as cell differentiation, malignant transformation, cell-virus interactions, X chromosome inactivation, cell cycle regulation, cell membranes, nuclear transfer, blastomere aggregation, and immunogenetics are published if relevant to the primary emphasis of the journal.
