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.

Current Research

The field of Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field. It covers the different field of science starting from natural sciences: information about the world to socioeconomic impact behavior, politics, economy, etc. and most importantly the nature-nurture interactions. With the understanding that "DNA is not the destiny", my research focus shifts to epigenetics study (2013 -till). The objective of our lab is to explore the impact of environmental and occupational hazards on human health and to study the interaction between genes and environment.

  • Environmental Epigenomics- Arsenic and its epigenetic regulation in carcinogenesis. Identifying the role of mitoepigenetics.
  • Nutriepigenomics- Being reversible the altered epigenomic mark can be corrected with the application of drug/bioactive compounds. We are presently trying to identify the major bioactive compounds of black tea and emphasize its role at the molecular level. Study of the epigenetic modulation of black tea is ongoing and we are also looking for different utilization of spent tea leaves.
  • Occupational Health and waste management-waste to resource and study the health impact of an occupational group, intervention strategies
