Genome Biology publishes outstanding research in all areas of biology and biomedicine studied from a genomic and post-genomic perspective.. Peer Review Process The Editor-in-Chief and the international Editorial Board ensure a thorough and fair peer-review process with the highest scientific publishing standards. Genomic research is an upcoming field which is fast emerging after the results of human genome project were made publicly accessible. Subscribers receive brief summaries of Program Announcements (PAs) and Requests for Applications (RFAs), Notices, etc. 1991 — NACHGR meets for the first time in Bethesda, Maryland. 1990 — The Human Genome Project officially begins. 1990 — The genome research review committee is created so the center can conduct appropriate peer review of human genome grant applications. The current impact factor is 14.028 (2018) * and the journal is ranked 3rd among research journals in the Genetics and Heredity category, and 2nd among research journals in the Biotechnology and Applied Microbiology category by Thomson Reuters.

Cytogenetic and Genome Research uses a single-blind peer review system where reviewers know the names of the authors, but the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has established listservs to announce funding opportunities, other relevant federal notices, NHGRI policies, and courses that receive support from NHGRI. with links to more detailed information. The genome is an algorithm, and at the same time, it is a code, which had to be laboriously and ingeniously deciphered. The exciting and maturing area of genomic medicine, encompassing the use of individuals’ genetic information to guide clinical treatment, is featured in this Series. The world population is predicted to steadily rise to 9 billion by 2050 and it requires the increase of food production by 70% (Godfray et al., 2010). 1990 — The National Advisory Council for Human Genome Research (NACHGR) is established.
