Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
The study of the human genome has brought a number of opportunities to directly dissect and understand interactions and functional effects on human tissues and samples. Human Genomics invites studies in the area of population or functional genomics in humans. The aim of these studies broadly fall in inferring genome function based on population-based variability or mutation induction in human cells and tissues as well as the study of cellular and molecular phenotypes and their genetic architecture. Studies addressing eQTLs, methylation, chromatin and their genetic effects, integration of genome function with population variability in the genome and studies integrating population history, natural selection and genome function are natural fits for this section.

Human Genomics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Human Genomics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Human Genomics will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Genetics.
