  • 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

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.

    Aims and Scope

    Close

    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.

    Its original, methodological and review articles are devoted to:
    -Basic research on genome structure and mapping, gene expression and regulation, genetic variation, evolution and phylogenetics;
    - Applied research on conservation genetics, agricultural genetics, and genetic epidemiology.

    Biochemical Genetics welcomes 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.

    Although studies focusing on particular regions and target organisms are welcome, it is not the journal’s goal to publish essentially descriptive studies that provide results with narrow applicability, or are based on very small samples or pseudoreplication.

    Rather, Biochemical Genetics welcomes review articles that go beyond summarizing previous publications and create added value through the systematic analysis and critique of the current state of knowledge or by conducting meta-analyses.

    Methodological articles are also within the scope of Biological Genetics, particularly when new laboratory techniques or computational approaches are fully described and thoroughly compared with the existing benchmark methods.

    Biochemical Genetics welcomes articles on the following topics:

    • Genomics
    • Proteomics
    • Population genetics
    • Phylogenetics
    • Metagenomics
    • Microbial genetics
    • Genetics and evolution of wild and cultivated plants
    • Animal genetics and evolution
    • Human genetics and evolution
    • Genetic disorders
    • Genetic markers of diseases
    • Gene technology and therapy
    • Experimental and analytical methods
    • Statistical and computational methods.

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
