Sex and Gender Differences
Biology of Sex Differences considers manuscripts on all aspects of the effects of sex on biology and disease. Sex has profound effects on physiology and the susceptibility to disease. The function of cells and organs depends on their sex, determined by the interplay among the genome and biological and social environments. The study of sex differences is a discipline in itself, with its own concepts and methods that apply across tissues. Biology of Sex Differences is the official journal of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences, and a publication of the Society for Women’s Health Research.
Gender and the Genome is a peer reviewed, open access journal that provides evidence-based original research, reviews, perspectives, and commentaries that illuminate the impact of biological sex on technology and its effects on human life. The journal is the official journal of the Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine, the International Society for Gender-Specific Medicine, and the Israeli Society for Gender-and Sex Conscious Medicine. The Journal’s international editorial board is comprised of the most forward-thinking leaders in gender-specific medicine to engage the community of molecular biologists, engineers, ethicists, anthropologists, and legal experts in a dialogue about the nature and implications of 21st century technology.
