Editors for Genetics and Genomics

We aim to publish significant research in areas including the genetic basis of health and disease, comparative and functional genomics, epigenetics, genomics, medical genetics, genetic epidemiology, and population genetics. We welcome studies in all areas of human genetics as well as those that use cellular and animal models to explore traits of broad relevance to health and disease. We are particularly keen to see studies that use human genetics to drive risk variant discovery, and/or apply such information to provide further mechanistic insights into disease biology, to dissect the genetic architecture of disease, to explore the impact of modifiable risk factors, and/or to support translational advances. Read the latest research in this subject area.

  3. Murim Choi

    Seoul National University College of Medicine, South Korea

    Murim Choi’s main scientific question is to elucidate the genetic mechanisms of human diseases. To address this, his expertise lies in the functional interpretation of human genetic variants using genomic and bioinformatic methodologies. He graduated from Seoul National University (SNU), Seoul, Korea, majoring in Molecular Biology (BS and MS). During the Ph.D course at Duke University, he studied cardiovascular system development in mice. In his postdoctoral training at Yale University, he studied human genetics, setting up a whole exome sequencing pipeline and applying it to various human diseases to identify causal genes. He received a K99/R00 grant for the postdoctoral works and was a recipient of SNU Invitation Program for Distinguished Scholar grant.

    Establishing his independent lab at SNU, he has been studying the genetic mechanisms of rare disease pathogenesis, focusing on cases with neurodevelopmental defects. His current approach combines developmental biology and genetics, shaped by the fact that most pediatric rare disease patients experience congenital problems. More recently, his group has undertaken common disease research. His group recently established a bioinformatic pipeline that allows screening of eQTL signals only functioning in the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) status and validated its utility. At SNU, he has been instrumental in establishing genetics and genomics methodologies by collaborating with clinicians in SNU Hospital. His lab has recently established protocols in advanced functional genomics approaches, including single-cell sequencing, saturation mutagenesis, modifier screening, and cell tracing technique to understand the genetic mechanisms underlying disease progression.

    He has a strong interest in clinical and translational research, especially in elucidating genotype-phenotype relationships that may lead to human diseases. In 2018, he was selected as a member of the Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology.

  4. Mike Eisen

    Michael B Eisen

    HHMI, University of California, Berkeley, United States

    Michael Eisen majored in math as an undergraduate at Harvard, exploiting the department’s lack of interest in what students did outside of the field to pursue his true love of ecology and evolutionary biology. Trying to unite his quantitative side with his interest in biology, he entered the Harvard Graduate Program in Biophysics, completing his PhD with Don Wiley, using X-ray crystallography to study the evolution of influenza virus proteins.

    After a stint as the play-by-play voice of the Columbia (Tennessee) Mules Professional Baseball Club, he joined the labs of Pat Brown and David Botstein at Stanford at the dawn of the era of functional genomics, where he played multiple roles in the development of DNA microarrays as a tool for studying biology. His most notable contribution was a 1998 paper showing how clustering methods can reveal underlying biological structure in genomic data that helped to establish many analytical paradigms in genomics.

    He began his independent career at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, before moving to the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley. In addition to the main focus of his lab – using experimental, computational and evolutionary methods to study spatial patterns of gene regulation in the early Drosophila embryo – he has a longstanding interest in understanding the molecular basis for the varied microorganisms that have evolved to manipulate animal behavior.

    Outside of the lab, he has been a fervent and occasionally strident advocate for opening up the system of scholarly publishing, founding, along with Brown and Harold Varmus, the Public Library of Science (PLOS). More recently he has dabbled in politics and serves as an advisor to Impossible Foods, a company Brown started to create plant-based meats to end the planetary scourge of animal farming.

    Competing interests statement
    Impossible Foods: I am an advisor to Impossible Foods, a company founded by my former postdoctoral advisor Patrick Brown, to develop plant-based alternatives to foods derived from animal projects. I got involved in the company because animal farming has a massively negative effect on the planet, and because I believe we can reduce this negative impact by offering consumers products that satisfy their desire for meat, cheese and other dairy products that have less of an impact on the environment. I spend time on the company because I believe deeply in its mission, but I also receive a small stipend for my work and own equity. 23andMe: I used to serve on the Scientific Advisory Board of 23andMe, a company that provides consumers with information on their DNA through genotyping and through a website that offers information on ancestry and ties the unique collection of DNA variants they contain to the emerging scientific literature on the effect of these mutation. I do not hold any equity in the company, but I support their mission and my long affiliation with them may constitute a conflict of interest. Public Library of Science: For 20 years I have been a public advocate for reforming the way scientists communicate, and much of my work in this domain focused on the Public Library of Science, a non-profit publisher of open-access scientific and medical journals on whose board of directors I served from 2002–18. My work for PLOS was strictly on a volunteer basis: at no point did I receive any compensation from the company for my role. Despite having no financial interest in PLOS, I have put a huge amount of blood, sweat and tears into the company. I believe fervently in its mission and have an obvious personal stake in its success, even though I am no longer affiliated with them. Science funding: As a working scientist who has received grants from a variety of government funding agencies, I have a professional interest in promoting science funding and in influencing the way research funds are distributed. Anyone who follows me knows that I speak my mind freely on the NIH and other funding agencies and their problems, but I will admit that I used to pull my punches occasionally for fear that it would influence my prospects of funding. I currently receive virtually all of my lab’s funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and thus I clearly have a professional conflict when talking about HHMI. Institutional: I work at the University of California, Berkeley, and have an institutional conflict of interest on anything dealing with UCB, with the University of California writ large, educational funding in California, and, arguably, public higher education policy at the national and state level. I also have a conflict of interest when talking about areas where UC, UCB or my department (Molecular and Cell Biology) have a financial interest, especially on patents. This is currently most relevant in regards to the patent interference case being contested by Berkeley, MIT and others over CRISPR technology.
