About this Research Topic
The research topic aims to highlight recent discoveries centered on the genetic and epigenetic basis of cancer initiation, proliferation, and metastasis. This will be a unique platform spanning genes and mechanisms that intercept genetic and epigenetic mutations and modulations aiming at developing cancer theranostics and precision medicine. Experimental studies, in vivo models, review articles, meta-analyses, and epidemiological studies are welcome for publication.
Bioinformatics studies are welcome. However, these should not be based solely on analysis of publicly available datasets such as TCGA. Having an independent validation cohort is essential for statistically significant confirmation of the findings communicated.
Keywords: Cancer genetics, Cancer epigenetics, Cancer causing mutations, Drug targets, Epigenetic reprogramming, Genetic mechanism of cancer development, carcinogenesis, mutation, genomic heterogeneity, therapeutic targets, invasion and metastasis, susceptibility genes, cancer microenvironment
