International Journal of Genome science is a peer-reviewed open acess journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of Genetics. As a journal that has evolved with the field that carries its name, Genomics focuses on the development and application of cutting-edge methods, addressing fundamental questions with potential interest to a wide audience. Our aim is to publish the highest quality research and to provide authors with rapid, fair and accurate review and publication of manuscripts falling within our scope. This journal provides the means for scientists, researchers, medical doctors, clinicians and biotechnologists to publish original rapid communications, full papers and timely state-of- the-art reviews encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all areas of the genome science and technology. Highest priority will be given to short communications reporting important new scientific and technological findings. Short communications on new findings with breakthrough results will be considered for accelerated publication though authors should provide a brief description why the manuscript be considered for fast tracking .

Genetics and genomics both play roles in health and disease. Genetics helps individuals and families learn about how conditions such as sickle cell anemia and cystic fibrosis are inherited in families, what screening and testing options are available, and, for some genetic conditions, what treatments are available. Genetics is a term that refers to the study of genes and their roles in inheritance - in other words, the way that certain traits or conditions are passed down from one generation to another. Genetics involves scientific studies of genes and their effects.

Chiara Lauritano

Researcher

Dr.Chiara Lauritano (MD., PhD.) is Researcher in the Biotechnology Laboratory at Stazione  Zoologica Anton Dohrn of Naples, Italy. She accomplished her Ph.D in Animal Biology from Calabria University (Italy) and MD from Federico II Napoli University (Italy), and she received research and screening training as visitor from Station Biologique de Roscoff, Roscoff (France), Göteborg University, Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences, Kristine berg (Sweden), University of Tromsø (Norway) and University Federico II of Napoli, Department of Experimental Pharmacology (Italy). She also took part to Oceanographic cruises in both European and Sub-Antarctic waters. Scientifically, She has been interested in drug discovery from marine organisms (e.g. within the framework of the EU FP7 project Pharma Sea, http://www.pharma-sea.eu/) and marine organism responses to biotic and abiotic stressors (e.g. ocean acidification, nutrient starvation or enrichment, exposure to microalgal secondary metabolites). She has been interested in preparing and analyzing genomes and transcriptomes of marine organisms in order to study metabolic changes induced by stressful culturing conditions and to identify enzymes/metabolic pathways involved in the synthesis of secondary metabolites with potential biotechnological interest. She has outstanding records of scientific accomplishments with multiple research grants, numerous publications in highly prestigious journals and various presentations in both national and international conferences.

My research interests are in marine biology, functional genomics, and marine biotechnology. I am studying physiological and molecular responses to biotic and abiotic stressors (e.g. ocean acidification, nutrient starvation or enrichment, exposure to microalgal secondary metabolites) in marine organisms, especially microalgae. Currently, I am analyzing the transcriptomes of 4 microalgal species (the diatom Cylindrothecaclosterium, the dinoflagellatesAlexandriumtamutum and Amphidiniumcarterae, and the green algae Tetraselmissuecica) to study metabolic changes induced by stressful culturing conditions, enzymes involved in the synthesis of secondary metabolites and/or other enzymes with potential biotechnological applications.
