Biochemical Genetics publishes peer-reviewed articles that address the biochemical principles underlying genome structure, expression and evolution, and which cover pure and applied approaches focusing on all life forms. We welcome original manuscripts that address and test clear scientific hypotheses, are directed to a broad scientific audience, and clearly contribute to the advancement of the field through the use of sound sampling or experimental design, reliable analytical methodologies and, robust statistical analyses.

  • Publishes original, methodological and review articles on all life forms that contribute to the advancement of the field
  • Presents pure research on genome structure and mapping, gene expression and regulation, genetic variation, evolution, and phylogenetics
  • Also focuses on applied research on conservation genetics, agricultural genetics, genetic disorders and genetic epidemiology
  • Compliant with Open Access requirements of funding bodies, e.g., NIH
  • No publication charges
  • Optional Open Access Publication Fee (APC): Further information about to publish open access with Open Choice can be found at: https://www.springer.com/journal/10528/open-access-publishing#Publishing%20open%20access%20in%20this%20journal
