Genetic Epidemiology is a human genetics journal covering the genetic causes behind the distribution of human traits in families and populations. The journal focuses on the contribution of genetic and environmental factors to human disease as revealed by genetic, epidemiological, and biologic investigations.
Genetic Epidemiology is the official journal of the International Genetic Epidemiology Society. We primarily publish papers in statistical genetics, including bioinformatical and computational models for analyzing genetic data.
About This Journal
Genetic Epidemiology is a peer-reviewed journal for discussion of research on the genetic causes of the distribution of human traits in families and populations. Emphasis is placed on the relative contribution of genetic and environmental factors to human disease as revealed by genetic, epidemiological, and biologic investigations.
