Genetics is the branch of science concerned with genes, heredity, and variation in living organisms. It seeks to understand the process of trait inheritance from parents to offspring, including the molecular structure and function of genes, gene behaviour in the context of a cell or organism (e.g. dominance and epigenetics), gene distribution, and variation and change in populations.

An autoimmune pleiotropic SNP modulates IRF5 alternative promoter usage through ZBTB3-mediated chromatin looping
Here the authors used an evidence-based strategy to prioritize causal pleiotropic variants of autoimmune diseases, and revealed that rs4728142 modulates aberrant IRF5 alternative promoter usage by ZBTB3-mediated chromatin looping.

A transcriptomic analysis of endometriosis and comparison tissues has been conducted, revealing a rich and complex catalogue of single-cell-based expression data. This resource is an invaluable building block towards single cell profiling at scale, aiding research into endometriosis pathogenesis and new ways of diagnosing and treating the disease.
Optimal design of spatial transcriptomic experiments allows statistical evaluation of the impact of various biological and technological features on the discovery of cell phenotypes.

Feature papers represent the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field. A Feature Paper should be a substantial original Article that involves several techniques or approaches, provides an outlook for future research directions and describes possible research applications.
Feature papers are submitted upon individual invitation or recommendation by the scientific editors and must receive positive feedback from the reviewers.
Editor’s Choice articles are based on recommendations by the scientific editors of MDPI journals from around the world. Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to readers, or important in the respective research area. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal.

This Special Issue, “Feature Papers in Molecular Genetics and Genomics”, aims to collect high-quality research articles, review articles, and communications on advances in the research area of molecular genetics and genomics. Since the aim of this topical collection is to illustrate, through selected works, frontier research in the field of molecular genetics and genomics, we encourage Editorial Board Members of the “Molecular Genetics and Genomics” Section to contribute feature papers reflecting the latest progress in their research field, or to invite relevant senior experts and colleagues to make contributions to this Special Issue. We aim to represent our Section as an attractive open-access publishing platform for molecular genetics research.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Chromatin remodeling and dynamics;
- Epigenetics, DNA methylation, histone modification, histone code;
- DNA replication, repair, recombination, mobile DNA, mitochondrial DNA;
- RNA biology;
- Cell signaling, signal transduction, cell cycle, cell death, stem cells;
- Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression;
- Developmental genetics;
- Molecular basis of diseases.
