eLife editors present a collection of outstanding findings in Human Genetics published in the journal. We welcome studies that use human genetics to drive risk variant discovery, and which use this information to provide further mechanistic insights into disease biology – to dissect the genetic architecture of disease, and/or explore the relationship to environment, and to support translational advances (for example, with respect to risk stratification, disease subtyping or response to interventions).

More articles can be found on our subject pages for Genes and Chromosomes, Genomics and Evolutionary Biology, and Human Biology and Medicine
