Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For this special issue, we would like to invite submissions in the form of a review or with new findings, which discusses one or more of the following approaches that you incorporate to discovering and/or validating genetic markers in carcinogenesis:

-  genomewide association studies
-  candidate gene association studies
-  sequencing
-  miRNAs
-  epigenetics/DNA methylation
-  transcription profiling
-  systems biology

We would like for you to discuss how the technology and/or methods you utilize can be manipulated to better understand the ‘cancer genome’ and comment on how these technologies and/or methodologies may help towards achieving “personalized cancer treatment”. With your help, this Special Edition will undoubtedly be a great resource for current and future cancer researchers!

We look forward to reading your contributions,

Dr. Nora L. Nock
Guest Editor
