Unless they report entirely novel and unusual aspects of a topic, clinical case reports, cytogenetic case reports, papers on descriptive population genetics, articles dealing with the frequency of polymorphisms or additional mutations within genes in which numerous lesions have already been described, and papers that report the re-analysis of previously published datasets will normally not be accepted.
The Journal will not normally consider for publication manuscripts that report merely the isolation, map position, structure, and tissue expression profile of a gene of unknown function unless the gene is of unusual interest or is a candidate gene involved in a human trait or disorder.
Authors are asked to submit their papers to the Editorial Office in their geographical region. The Editors reserve the right to forward manuscripts to another office.
