Scope: Genome Biology covers all areas of biology and biomedicine studied from a genomic and post-genomic perspective. Content includes research, new methods and software tools, and reviews, opinions and commentaries. Areas covered include, but are not limited to: sequence analysis; bioinformatics; insights into molecular, cellular and organismal biology; functional genomics; epigenomics; population genomics; proteomics; comparative biology and evolution; systems and network biology; genome editing and engineering; genomics of disease; and clinical genomics
Additional free text: Co-submissions to other BMC ‘flagship’ journals. If a paper is potentially appropriate in scope for Genome Biology and either Genome Medicine or BMC Biology, authors have the opportunity to submit a manuscript for joint consideration at two of these journals at the same time. For a paper to be considered as a co-submission, the authors should upload their manuscript to one of the two journals and note in their cover letter that they would like a co-consideration with the second journal. Each journal will evaluate the paper independently. If both journals decide to send the paper for review, the editors will select reviewers together for a peer review process that evaluates the manuscript for both journals, and will make independent decisions based on reviewers’ feedback.
