Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of next-generation sequencing techniques has allowed us to make incredible progress in understanding the genetic etiologies of cardiovascular diseases over the past few decades. However, the number of different genes and genetic variants implicated in cardiovascular diseases such as cardiomyopathies, channelopathies, arrhythmias, and lipid disorders continues to increase. In addition, the complexity of the polygenic architectures of these diseases has yet to be untangled, leading to novel challenges in the interpretation of this vast data and clinical/translational applicability. Recent efforts to organize diverse large-scale populations linking genetic sequencing to longitudinal clinical data through biobanks and other large cohort studies have begun to shed light on these challenges in -omics research and the implementation of precision medicine for cardiovascular diseases. Paired with novel animal and cell culture models, these types of advances in genomics and bioinformatics have the potential to further our understanding of the genetic bases of cardiovascular diseases, nominate novel therapeutic targets for intervention, and provide data-driven guidance for the implementation of precision medicine. In summary, the aim of this Special Issue titled “Genomics and Genetics of Cardiovascular Diseases” is to present state-of-the-art review articles summarizing recent trends within the scientific community, as well as to publish original articles providing novel insights into the genetic and/or genomic aspects of cardiovascular diseases. Especially, studies with a focus on translational research and those based on large-scale studies linking genetic sequencing to clinical data are highly welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cardiogenetics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
