The American Journal of Human Genetics
Cell Press has been chosen by The American Society of Human Genetics to publish its premier monthly journal from January 2008. The American Journal of Human Genetics (AJHG) is an exciting new venture for Cell Press as its first society-owned journal. The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) and Cell Press anticipate tremendous synergies between AJHG content and that of the 12 Cell Press titles, including Cell, Molecular Cell, Current Biology, and Immunity.
Since its inception in 1948, The American Journal of Human Genetics has provided a record of research and review relating to heredity in humans, and to the application of genetic principles in medicine and public policy, as well as in related areas of molecular and cell biology.
