As you have likely seen in the news, Hurricane Harvey has caused major flooding and difficult conditions in Houston and the surrounding cities. Our thoughts are with our members, colleagues, the broader scientific community in southeast Texas, and all affected – we hope you and your loved ones are safe.
You may know that The American Journal of Human Genetics editorial office is located in Houston. AJHG’s website notes that their staff is safe, but there might be delays in responding to editorial questions over the next week.
Given that the ASHG 2017 early registration deadline is today, we are providing an extension for those affected by the hurricane. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Our thoughts remain with everyone affected.
