Nature Genetics is a scientific journal founded as part of the Nature family of journals in 1992. It publishes high quality research in genetics.

The journal encompasses genetic and functional genomic studies on human traits and on other model organisms, including mouse, fly, nematode and yeast. Current emphasis is on the genetic basis for common and complex diseases and on the functional mechanism, architecture and evolution of gene networks, studied by experimental perturbation.

It is an internationally recognized scientific publication with an Impact Factor of 27.959,[1][2] making it the second ranked journal in the category of genetics and heredity. Its sister journal is Nature Reviews Genetics.
