In modern molecular biology and genetics, the genome is the genetic material of an organism. It is encoded either in DNA or, for RNA viruses, in RNA. The genome includes both the genes and the non-coding sequences of the DNA/RNA. News relate to any information regarding a specific topic. The naming of these news or information can be done according to the topic. For example, genome news can be referred to as the news that includes information about geno0me. It may include any new invention, technology, methodology, etc. High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
