Current Genetics publishes genetic, genomic, molecular and systems-level analysis of eukaryotic and prokaryotic microorganisms and cell organelles. All articles are peer-reviewed. The journal welcomes submissions employing any type of research approach, be it analytical (aiming at a better understanding), applied (aiming at practical applications), synthetic or theoretical.
Current Genetics no longer accepts manuscripts describing the genome sequence of mitochondria/chloroplast of a small number of species. Manuscripts covering sequence comparisons and analyses that include a large number of species will still be considered.

  • Presents innovative research on eukaryotic and prokaryotic microorganisms as well as cell organelles
  • Covers basic research and biotechnological applications
  • No page charges, free color figures (print & online)
  • Rapid handling of manuscripts
  • Accepts submissions of all journal styles. No reformatting necessary upon submission

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.


    Please note that all content related to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 are accumulated and currently free to access here.
