Aims and Scope: Clinical Epigenetics

Clinical Epigenetics, the official journal of the Clinical Epigenetics Society, is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that encompasses all aspects of epigenetic principles and mechanisms in relation to human disease, diagnosis and therapy. Epigenetic research in disease model organisms is particularly welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Epigenetics and disease
  • Epigenetics and aging
  • Epigenetics in developmental processes
  • Epigenomics and pharmacoepigenomics
  • Epigenetics, environment, nutrition and evolution
  • DNA, histone and chromatin modifications
  • Non-coding RNA and gene silencing

Clinical Epigenetics focuses on epigenetic changes in normal and diseased cells in response to internal or external factors with the aim to translate basic epigenetic research into diagnosis, therapy and prevention.
