About the Journal

PUBMED NLM-ID: 101608636

Genetics is a discipline of the Biological sciences that studies personal traits the human or living organism inherit from its ancestors through genes and Embryology studies the development of the fertilized embryo from the ovum to the fetus stage.

Journal of Human Genetics and Embryology is a peer reviewed scientific journal known for rapid dissemination of high-quality research. This Human Genetics Journal with high impact factor offers an open access platform to the authors in academia and industry to publish their novel research in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. It serves the International Scientific Community with its standard research publications.

This scholarly publishing is using Editorial Manager System for quality in the review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review process is performed by the editorial board members of Human Genetics & Embryology journal or outside experts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by the editor is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.


Human Genetics

Human genetics is the study of inheritance in human beings. Human characteristics are inherited from parents to offspring in discrete unites called genes. Genes consist of specific information coded in the chromosome that consists of segments of chromosomes. Human genetics includes a variety of overlapping fields like classical, molecular, biochemical, population, developmental, clinical and cytogenetics.

Genome Biology

Genome biology deals with genomes. Genomes are the genetic material of an organism. They consists of DNA or RNA. Genome includes both the genes and as well as non-coding sequences of DNA or RNA.

Mendelian Genetics

Mendelian genetics are the set of theories proposed by Gregor Johann Mendel. Mendelian genetics tends to explain inheritance and biological diversity regarding the transmission of genetic characters from parents to offsprings. These are based on statistical analysis and scientific breeding experiments on pea plants. Mendelian genetics is used to study the pattern of segregation of phenotypes under the control of genes taken one at a time.

Genetic linkages

Genetic linkages is the tendency of alleles that are located close together on a chromosome to be inherited together during meiosis. Genes whose loci are nearer to each other are less likely to be separated onto different chromatids during chromosomal crossover, and are therefore said to be genetically linked. In other words, the nearer two genes are on a chromosome, the lower is the chance of a swap occurring between them, and the more likely they are to be inherited together.

Genetic Code

Genetic code helps in carrying the information of living cells by DNA and RNA molecules. The genetic code is the set of rules by which information encoded within genetic material (DNA or mRNA sequences) is translated into proteins by living cells.  This help in determining the amino acid sequence used in the synthesis of an organism proteins. It is the basis of heredity. It is universal in all organisms.

Gene Mapping

Gene mapping is any method used for determining the location of gene and relative distances between genes on a chromosome. gene maps are used for linkage analysis. Relative positions of genes can be determined by inheritance patterns. locating and identifying genes in  a genetic map is known as gene mapping or genetic mapping.

Huntington disease

Huntington disease is an inherited disease.Huntington disease causes the degeneration of nerve cells in brain. This leads to functional inabilities and psychiatric disorders. Huntington disease also affects muscle coordination. It is caused by an inherited defect in a single gene. Gene that causes Huntington disease is HIT gene. Symptoms of the disease can vary between individuals and affected members of the same family, but usually progress predictably.

Embryology is a branch of biology. Embryology is the state of embryo development from the fertilization of the ovum to the fetus stage. Embryology deals with the origin, growth and development of an embryo. cells which result after fertilisation  is termed as an embryo. After  eight weeks the developed embryo can be termed as fetus. there are different stages of embryonic development. the study of embryo is also known as embryology.

Human Fertilization and Embryogenesis

Human fertilization is a union of egg and sperm resulting in a fertilized egg, also called as zygote. Fertilization takes place inside the fallopian tube. Embryogenesis starts with fertilization of egg cell. Embryogenesis forms and develop the embryo.

Correlative Embryology

Correlative embryology is a branch of embryology. It is used to compare and contrasts embryos of different species. Correlative embryology is used to show how all animals are related. Many things are compared, whether or not the organism has a notochord or whether or not it has gill arches. All embryos pass from single cells to multi celled zygotes, clumps of cells called morulas and hallow balls of cells called blastula before they differentiate into organs and systems of body. Many components go into Comparative Embryology and about the developmental similarities between species can be taken from its study, which many conclusions can be drawn.

Embryonic Development

Embryonic development takes 8weeks to the embryo to develop. human embryo development depends on stem cells. During embryonic development cells divide, migrate and specialize. Early development stages forms a group of cells called inner cell mass which are able to produce all tissues of the body. Later during gastrulation period, the three germ layers are formed and most cells become restricted in type of cells that they produce.

Morphogenesis is an embryological process of differentiation of cells, tissues and organs and the development of organ systems according to genetic blueprint of the organism and environmental conditions. Morphogenesis is the development of biology along with the control of growth and cellular differentiation.

Sex Chromosomes

Sex chromosomes are either a pair of chromosomes that determines whether an individual is male or female.  Sex chromosomes are designated as X and Y. There are 23 pairs of sex chromosomes. The other 22 chromosome are called as autosomes. chromosome which differs from shape or function  of other chromosome that determines the sex of child. If the sex chromosome is Xy then it is male child and if sex chromosome is XY then it is female child. sex chromosomes carry those genes that control development of  reproductive organs  and secondary sex characteristics.

Major Disease Statistics
*2018 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2016 and 2017 with the number of times they are cited in 2018 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2016 and 2017, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2018 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
