Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine: New open access journal launched by Wiley
Date:11/5/2012

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced the launch of Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine (MGGM), a new Wiley Open Access journal. Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Dr. Maximilian Muenke, the journal will provide rapid dissemination of high-quality research in all areas of human, medical and molecular genetics.

Dr. Muenke, a renowned medical geneticist, trained in pediatrics in his native Germany and then pursued postdoctoral fellowship training in human and clinical genetics at Yale and the University of Pennsylvania. He is now based at a leading research organization in Bethesda, USA.

Dr. Muenke's group identified several genes important in craniofacial disorders including one of the most common, now termed Muenke syndrome. More recently, his lab has identified susceptibility genes for the most common childhood behavioral disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), with further research focused on predicting severity, treatment, and long-term outcome.

Working alongside an international editorial board of experts in diverse areas of human and medical genetics and genomics, Dr. Muenke will oversee the rigorous peer-review and evaluation of articles submitted for publication in MGGM.

"I am extremely excited about being the founding editor of this new journal," says Dr. Muenke. "Since there is not a single disorder that does not have a genetic origin, I believe that the fields of molecular genetics and genomic medicine will be expanding into virtually all medical specialties. MGGM will grow as well, with articles on diseases from diagnosis to treatment, as a step toward personalized medicine. "

Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine is the latest addition to Wiley's portfolio of genetics journals and will benefit from relationships with widely respected titles including the American Journal of Medical Genetics and Human Mutation.

"We're delighted to expand our open access portfolio with the addition of this important new journal," said Rachel Burley, Vice President and Director, Open Access, Wiley. "Under the expert editorial leadership of Dr. Muenke, Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine will make a valuable contribution to the literature."
