ASHG to Launch Human Genetics and Genomics Advances, a New Open Access Journal.
ASHGWe are excited to announce the launch of Human Genetics and Genomics Advances, a new open-access journal for the genetics and genomics research community! HGG Advances will publish across the spectrum of human genetics and genomics research.
This month, AJHG editors interviewed Natalie Telis on her recent paper describing gendered question-asking behavior at scientific conferences.
ASHGNew on Inside AJHG: @NatalieTelis describes her recent paper in @AJHGNews on measuring - and addressing - gender differences in asking questions at scientific conferences. #womeninscience #womeninSTEM #ASHGtrainee #ASHG19
Geneticist Natalie Telis noticed few women asking questions at scientific conferences. So she publicized the problem and set about to make a change. Christopher Intagliata reports.
ASHGFollowing up on work first presented at #ASHG17, @NatalieTelis and colleagues recently published their findings on gendered question-asking behavior at scientific conferences, in @AJHGNews. @sciam covers this work in their 60-second podcast.
The evidence base supporting genetic and genomic sequence-variant interpretations
is continuously evolving. An inherent consequence is that a variant’s clinical significance
might be reinterpreted over time as new evidence emerges regarding its...
ASHGFor reference during today's webinar: ASHG and partner orgs issued a statement in April on the responsibility to recontact research participants.
ASHGA big THANK YOU to all who submitted their newest, most exciting science for presentation at #ASHG19! We look forward to programming your work in the coming weeks.

Enacted in 2008, GINA is a federal law that protects against genetic discrimination in the workplace and through one’s health insurance.
ASHG11 years ago today, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) was signed into law. Learn how this landmark legislation protects you and your family from genetic discrimination in the workplace and in #healthinsurance.
Approved in May 2019, the ASHG Strategic Plan features four goals for the next 3-5 years.
ASHGIt's here! After several months of member input, planning, and thoughtful discussion, we're excited to unveil ASHG's 2019-2023 Strategic Plan, which features exciting new areas of growth and an inspiring vision. #genetics #genomics
Back in April 2003, when the international Human Genome Project successfully completed the first reference sequence of the human DNA blueprint, we were thrilled to have achieved that feat in just 1…
ASHGIn new research, whole-genome sequencing of newborns, paired with artificial intelligence, yielded diagnoses within 24 hours. @NIHDirector Francis Collins reflects on rapid progress in sequencing power in recent years.
