MR publishes articles in the following areas:
- Of special interest are basic mechanisms through which DNA damage and mutations impact development and differentiation, stem cell biology and cell fate in general, including various forms of cell death and cellular senescence.
- The study of genome instability in human molecular epidemiology and in relation to complex phenotypes, such as human disease, is considered a growing area of importance.
- Mechanisms of (epi)mutation induction, for example, during DNA repair, replication or recombination; novel methods of (epi)mutation detection, with a focus on ultra-high-throughput sequencing.
- Landscape of somatic mutations and epimutations in cancer and aging.
- Role of de novo mutations in human disease and aging; mutations in population genomics.
- Interactions between mutations and epimutations.
- The role of epimutations in chromatin structure and function.
- Mitochondrial DNA mutations and their consequences in terms of human disease and aging.
- Novel ways to generate mutations and epimutations in cell lines and animal models.

Benefits to authors
MR is focused on promoting the authors and the work published in the journal:
- All articles are carefully evaluated by the Editors-in-Chief or Associate Editors who are leading experts in their field
- Availability: contact the Editors-in-Chief via the Editorial Board page for any questions you may have
- The Journal will provide upon request free PDFs to all authors who may not have access to their articles via their institution or library
- Publication is free to authors (no color or page charges)
- Supporting open access: if your funding body or institution requires your article to be open access, MR offers that option. Please see details here.
- Reuse figures from any MR article via "get rights and content" hyperlink available within each article (below author names and affiliations) on ScienceDirect.
- Please click here for more information on more general author services.
