2016 MEDIA KIT
â€œThe timing is absolutely perfect for a consumer magazine on personalized medicine and genomics. The public is hearing about the breakthroughs regularly, and they are eager to be empowered with this type of information.â€?
Dr. Geoffrey Ginsburg Executive Director, Center for Personalized and Precision Medicine, Duke University, and Editor-at-Large, Genome magazine
Targeted treatment is the future of healthcare. Genome is a quarterly magazine that covers the personalized medicine stories of today and the breakthroughs of tomorrow, so that patients have the information they need to get the targeted treatments they deserve. When patients fully understand how personalized medicine can transform the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic and life-altering diseases, they will be able to have informed, meaningful conversations with their healthcare professionals.

Zilpha 101 years old Los Angeles, California “I don’t feel like I am 100 years old. I still live on my own, in the house I designed and help build with my husband. I still drive. I do the gardening, and I still fix the plumbing around here.”
Milton 101 years old Torrance, California “I was my parents’ only son,” says the former art director and employee of the Walt Disney Studios, who continues to draw and paint. “So I was spoiled, and I expected to be waited on by my seven sisters.”
A combination of genetic luck, environment, and attitude may be the key to living longer. BY KENDALL K. MORGAN

Genome magazine explores the complexity of genomics and medicine – and the associated ethical, legal, and social issues – but tells these stories in a relevant, easyto-understand manner for a lay audience. We also examine issues that affect our readers on a daily basis, including personal health topics, such as diet, exercise, sleep, spirituality, and more. Editorial schedule is tentative and subject to change.

In the spring issue, Genome will focus on what healthy people can learn from whole genome sequencing. Another feature will delve into personalized medicine for dogs. Our deep dive will examine the genetic links between celiac disease and autoimmune disorders. We will also explore how biochips and mini-organs are being used in research and discuss the complexities of preimplantation genetic diagnosis. Readers will learn about privacy and testing, and if people can be identified by their genotype.
Genome will spotlight how the smartphone is on the crest of radically changing health care. An additional feature will examine how patients are paying for personalized medicine. Our deep dive will explore how cancer is being reclassified based on molecular profiling instead of tissue of origin. Other topics include discussions on family dynamics if you should get a positive mutation result from testing, the one million person cohort proposed by Obamaâ€™s Precision Medicine Initiative, and how to create health reports from 23andMe and other direct-toconsumer tests.

In the fall issue, Genome will feature a deep dive into rare genetic diseases. We will also look at how pharmacogenomics is preventing deadly side effects from drugs. Another feature will discuss what functional medicine is and how it is related to genomics. Readers will learn how companies are helping patients gather, track, and organize their medical information, and whether genetic testing motivates behavior change. Race and ethnic disparities in genomic research will also be examined.
Genome will examine how genomic medicine is changing the investigation of outbreaks, such as Ebola. An additional feature will highlight global precision medicine initiatives. Our deep dive will explore how personalized medicine is changing colon cancer. Other topics include what consumers should know about synthetic bacteria and the microbiome, and how genomics is being used to optimize athletic performance. We will also look at STEM education and genomic literacy for the next generation.
