SCIOL Genetic Science is an open access journal publishes papers on latest developments related to human and animal genome, specific gene expressions in health and disease.

We consider publishing original research articles, reviews, reports, commentaries, editorials, proceedings, letters to the editor, methodologies and technologies. The journal publishes genetic studies of organisms ranging from microbes to humans.

The journal provides immediate access to the published content under the open access policy. This journal operates a single blind review process. The articles will be examined by editorial board members, Inhouse and external review team and published every in HTML/Web version and PDF formats.

    Abstract: To develop this patented Genetic Addiction Risk Score (GARS), we first selected ten reward candidate genes including Dopamine receptors (DRD1, 2, 3, 4); Dopamine Transporter (DAT1); serotonin transporter, COMT, MAO, GABA, Mu opiate receptor and a number of SNPs and point mutations that influence the net function of dopamine at the brain reward site.

    DNA Sequencing Basics and its Applications

    Manu Mitra

    Citation: Mitra M (2018) DNA Sequencing Basics and its Applications. SCIOL Genet Sci 2018;1:80-84

     

    Abstract: DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) sequencing is to determine the order of four chemical building blocks called “bases” that makes up DNA molecule. DNA sequence is a genetic information that is carried out in specific DNA segment. This DNA sequence information can be used to determine which stretches of DNA that contain genes and which transmit supervisory instructions, turning genes on or off and most importantly, sequence data can highlight variations in a gene that may cause disease.

    Genetics, Inheritance Pattern and Genotype Selection in Isabgol (Plantago Ovata Forsk)

    Sougata Sarkar and Raj Kishori Lal

    Citation: Sarkar S, Lal RK (2018) Genetics, Inheritance Pattern and Genotype Selection in Isabgol (Plantago Ovata Forsk). SCIOL Genet Sci 2018;1:68-79.

     

    Abstract: A set of six crosses consisting of six generations were raised to study the nature of gene action in Plantago ovata. Significance in the Scaling test was instrumental for tracing out interacting and non-interacting characters in crosses. Interacting crosses were analyzed for gene interactions. The interacting crosses were subjected to six parameter model (m, d, h, i, j, l) whereas, the non-interacting crosses were subjected to three parameter model (m, d, h).

    Biometric Traits of Black Coat Coloured Cattle in Obudu Grass Plateau, South-South Nigeria

    Ayuk AA, Dauda A, Anya MI and Umoh KE

    Citation: Ayuk AA, Dauda A, Anya MI, Umoh KE (2018) Biometric Traits of Black Coat Coloured Cattle in Obudu Grass Plateau, South- South Nigeria. SCIOL Genet Sci 2018;1:62-67.

     

    Abstract: A total of 237 (120 female and 117 male) black coat coloured cattle were used for phenotypic traits characterization. Some of the phenotypic traits measured were Body Weight (BW), Body Length (BL), Height-at-Withers (HW), Head Length (HDL), Head Width (HDW), Ear Length (EL), Horn Length (HL), Tail Length (TL) and Heart Girth (HG). The data obtained were analyzed using SAS.

    PVSRIPO Effect on Cancer

    Vishal Jindal, Matthew Lee, Darshan Rola and Mir Saleem

    Citation: Jindal V, Lee M, Rola D and Saleem M (2018) PVSRIPO Effect on Cancer. SCIOL Genet Sci 2018;1:56-61.

     

    Abstract: The poliovirus once was considered fatal due to the severe symptoms the virus caused. In many cases it brought about the onset of paralysis, sometimes paralyzing the muscles of the diaphragm which lead to death.
