About this Research Topic
For its inaugural research topic within Immunogenetics / Frontiers in Genetics, we invite immunogeneticists from all research and application fields to showcase the results of their own investigations as original papers or to provide balanced summaries of particular areas in
formats of reviews, minireviews or opinion/hypothesis papers.
The submissions may refer to the following areas/topics, these are however examples and submissions are not limited to those:
- Immune response genes in their broad context, including population immunogenetics & anthropology, and evolution;
- Regulation of immune response, in physiological state and pathophysiological situations/disorders, including current and emerging infectious disease;
- Translational (i.e. “Clinical”) Immunogenetics and applications towards personalized medicine incl. Transplantation, Immunotherapy, Disease Associations;
- Methods in Immunogenetics: laboratory, Bionformatics, Genetic epidemiology and Statistics etc.;
- Data in Immunogenetics (databases of gene variants, repositories and other resources, workshops);
- Applications of Immunogenetics to neighbouring areas and mutual interactions with Immunoinformatics, Immunomics, Genomics and other Omics sciences;
- Novel ideas and thoughts – hypotheses, opinions/counter-opinions etc. in the context of Immunogenetics theory and practice;
- “History“ of immunogenetics –how its finding and methods contributed to the evolution of personalized patient care.
Keywords: Immunogenetics, histocompatibility, omics, Translational research
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
