Nat Rev Genet. 2020 Oct;21(10):581-596. doi: 10.1038/s41576-020-0272-6. Epub 2020 Aug 24.


In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Nature Reviews Genetics, we asked 12 leading researchers to reflect on the key challenges and opportunities faced by the field of genetics and genomics. Keeping their particular research area in mind, they take stock of the current state of play and emphasize the work that remains to be done over the next few years so that, ultimately, the benefits of genetic and genomic research can be felt by everyone.
