APS launches new online journal to focus on link between genes and function

Bethesda, MD -- The American Physiological Society today announced the launch of Physiological Genomics. This new online journal was created to provide the scientific community with a vehicle for the rapid dissemination of information about genetic physiology -- the influence of genes on physiological function. The journal will be posted to the World Wide Web on July 15, 1999 at http://www.physiolgenomics.org

Articles for Physiological Genomics will be submitted, reviewed, and published online, with a paper version of the journal published as needed for archival purposes. The on-line submission and review process will be handled through the APS web site at http://www.apscentral.org. This utilization of World Wide Web information technology will not only speed up the publication process, it will also make it possible for researchers to provide readers with large data sets and to display results in dynamic formats that would be impossible to produce on a printed page.

"The existing and forthcoming DNA sequences of model organisms and human are proceeding at an expeditious pace, and the enormous task of linking genes to function has now begun," wrote Editor-in-Chief Victor J. Dzau, MD, in the welcome editorial. Dzau is the Hershey Professor of Medicine and Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. "New genetic knowledge coupled with existing and emerging molecular genetic, bioinformatic, and other biological techniques have paved the way for the next great challenge and opportunity for physiology and medicine: a more complete understanding of whole organism functioning," Dzau noted.

Physiological Genomics has been in development for two years. It was conceived by an international group of scientists from academia, government, and industry that convened at Cold Spring Harbor in February of 1997 to discuss "Genomics to Physiology and Beyond: How
