Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in this Special Issue on “Genetics of Human Cardiovascular Disease”.

The genetics of human cardiovascular disease represent a very broad topic. In recent decades, much attention has been given to the study of the genetics of such common diseases as coronary artery disease and a number of its subphenotypes, arterial hypertension, and stroke. Researchers have come a long way: from studying individual markers to whole genomes, from studying small cohorts to creating large biobanks. Great efforts are focused on the creation of polygenic risk meters for common diseases. At the same time, studies of monogenic diseases are underway, and methods for searching for causal nucleotide variants are being improved. A very important area of research is orphan diseases.

Our understanding of oligogenic diseases is expanding. Every year, there is more and more research on the epigenetic mechanisms of disease development. The deepening of our knowledge gradually leads to a decrease in the share of multifactorial diseases in human pathology due to their transition to other categories. The development of new methods and approaches will give us many more discoveries.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to present original research and review articles that will help us keep up to date with the latest research in the field of CVD genetics.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Genes.
