The new journal, Physiological Genomics, by the American Physiological Society, will be online prior to print and can be found at http://www.physiolgenomics.org. Edited by Victor Dzau, M.D., and an outstanding group of editors, the journal will serve as a bridge between the efforts of investigators working on the various genomics projects and the need to apply their discoveries to understanding physiology.
The completion of the Human Genome Project will be one of the greatest achievements in biology. The speed at which the mapping and sequencing of genomes of the human and other diverse life forms is occurring has resulted in a revolution in the biological sciences. The enormous task of linking genes to function has now begun, punctuated by predictions that within 5 years nearly all of the 70-100,000 genes of the human genome will be mapped and sequenced. This revolution in genetics has paved the way for the next great challenge and opportunity for physiology and medicine.
Physiological Genomics represents a bold new venture to publish the results of a wide variety of studies from human and from informative model systems with techniques linking genes and pathways to physiology, from prokaryotes to eukaryotes. The Journal encourages the submission of research that links genes to cell replication, development, metabolic function, cell signal transduction and intracellular signaling pathways, tissue and organ function, and whole organism function. Physiological Genomics encourages the utilization of approaches ranging from expression profiling, assays for molecular interactions, natural and directed gene alteration, selective breeding studies, gene identification, and the assessment of gene/environment interaction. The Journal welcomes important new technologies and concepts that enhance the study of physiological genomics. The Journal encourages publication of new computational approaches, integrative models, and image analysis predictive of gene function. Physiological Genomics features invited reviews and perspectives that contribute to enhancing the understanding of the scientific approaches and concepts which link genetics and physiology. The journal is committed to rapid peer review to ensure the publication of high-quality papers and timely news and reviews articles.
