Genome Integrity, a new open access journal launched with BioMed Central, published its first articles today. The journal publishes research on all aspects of genome integrity, the cellular processes underlying maintenance of genome stability, and the effects of instability.
In their introductory editorial ‘Genome Integrity – a new open access journal’ Editors-in-Chief Predrag Slijepcevic, Prakash Hande, John Petrini, and Razqallah Hakem discuss the important publishing niche that the journal will fill in the field of DNA damage response and the associated cellular processes behind genome stability maintenance.
“We strongly believe that this new journal will significantly contribute to the understanding of DNA damage response processes” say the Editors-in-Chief.
One of the articles published today with Genome Integrity by Professor Keiji Suzuki et al researches the role of ATM activity in DNA damage checkpoints, and another article by Dr Alireza Senejani and Professor Joann Sweasy discusses the incidence of a novel DNA sequence found within a mouse genomic fragment inserted into a plasmid vector.
