We are now entering the third decade of the 21st Century, and, especially in the last years, the achievements made by scientists have been exceptional, leading to major advancements in the fast-growing field of Genetics.

Frontiers has organized a series of Research Topics to highlight the latest advancements in research across the field of Genetics, with articles from the members of our accomplished Editorial Boards. This editorial initiative of particular relevance, led by Prof. Michael Symonds, Specialty Chief Editor of the Epigenomics and Epigenetics section, together with Dr. Ruden, Dr. Rastegar, and Dr. Chernov, is focused on new insights, novel developments, current challenges, latest discoveries, recent advances, and future perspectives in the field of Epigenomics and Epigenetics.

The Research Topic solicits brief, forward-looking contributions from the editorial board members that describe the state of the art, outlining recent developments and major accomplishments that have been achieved and that need to occur to move the field forward. Authors are encouraged to identify the greatest challenges in the sub-disciplines, and how to address those challenges.

The goal of this special edition Research Topic is to shed light on the progress made in the past decade in the Epigenomics and Epigenetics field, and on its future challenges to provide a thorough overview of the field. This article collection will inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the field.

Keywords: genetics, epigenomics, epigenetics

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.
