As part of the PLOS Genetics Tenth Anniversary celebrations, we’re launching a special anniversary collection to highlight the best of PLOS Genetics research articles over the last ten years.

In this collection, you’ll find our PLOS Genetics ‘Top Ten’– the ten most downloaded articles from the past ten years. Get started by reading the Editorial from the Editors-in-Chief, Gregory Barsh and Gregory Copenhaver, which introduces the collection and recounts ten reasons to contribute to a community-run journal. The Editorial also includes a series of commentaries from experts in the respective fields, in which they outline why our Top Ten articles have had such an impact. Including a range of topics such as bacteria, primates, population structure and GWAS- the collection is sure to have something to peak your interest. The collection features the image that PLOS Genetics contributors voted their favourite issue image of all time as part of the anniversary celebrations.

While these ten articles represent the best of PLOS Genetics, the collection is by no means exhaustive; PLOS Genetics is chock-full of excellent articles which you can always access through the PLOS Genetics archive. You can find out more about all the Tenth Anniversary Celebration here.

The collection highlights two things PLOS Genetics values greatly – community involvement and excellent research – and we hope you enjoy it! We’re looking forward to the next decad(e)s of presenting cutting-edge research in PLOS Genetics.
