The Training and Development Committee of the American Society of Human Genetics is pleased to announce the ASHG Trainee Paper Spotlight, a feature that will highlight outstanding papers written by trainee members. A new Spotlight will be posted to the ASHG Trainee Forum the last Wednesday of each month on a quarterly basis.
Please complete the form below to nominate an outstanding trainee research paper. We recognize that there are many subfields in human genetics and welcome nomination of good, peer-reviewed papers regardless of where they are published.
Past Trainee Paper Spotlights are available to browse by topic category.
