This journal aims to provide its readers with a swift, yet complete, current awareness service. This is achieved both by the scope and structure of the journal, key features of which are:-
• Careful selection of relevant abstracts (and other bibliographic data) from the latest issues of 4,000 leading international biomedical journals.
• The arrangement, within each issue, of abstracts into separate chapters devoted to a specific topic. The journal covers both clinical and experimental aspects of human genetics and includes genetics of lower animals when potentially relevant to human medicine, congenital defects and malformations, and basic genetics such as DNA synthesis, gene structure and regulation, genetic recombination and mutagenesis. Plant and microbial genetics are excluded from the coverage.
• Detailed author and keyword indexes to enable the reader to locate items of special interest.
