Authors' Blog: how to handle the changing nature of genetic information

In a world where the understanding of genetic variants is expanding, how should changes be communicated to patients who had genetic testing in the past, how often, and who is responsible for this? The authors of this article discuss the topic further in a post on the BMC Series blog.

Software: VDJView integrates immune single cell multi-omics data

This complete software package to analyze single cell gene expression, immune receptor and metadata, allows exploratory and hypothesis-driven analysis of multi-omic datasets.


Aims and scope

BMC Medical Genomics is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of functional genetics and genomics, genome structure, genome-scale population genetics, epigenetics and epigenomics, proteomics, systems analysis, and pharmacogenomics in relation to human health and disease.

Standards of reporting

BMC Medical Genomics advocates complete and transparent reporting of research. The BMC minimum standards of reporting checklist is intended as a tool for authors to transparently describe their research and ensure reproducibility. We encourage our authors to adhere to these standards when preparing their manuscript.

Research Data Support for authors

Research Data Support is an optional Springer Nature service available to researchers who have datasets they want to make easier to cite, share and find. Learn more about this service and the many benefits of making your data publicly available.

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.
