Large-scale sequencing and high-throughput ‘omic studies of a wide variety of cancers have revealed epigenomic variations, including DNA methylation, histone modification and mutations in genes involved in epigenetic regulation. These have provided mechanistic insights into cancer initiation and progression, and are revealing novel approaches and targets for therapeutic intervention.
This special issue aims to bring together translational findings in cancer epigenomics that have the potential to inform new approaches for screening, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of cancer.
The editors are accepting submissions of Research, Method, Database, Software and Open Debate manuscripts. The deadline for submissions has now been extended to February 15th 2014. The publication of these articles will be coordinated with specially commissioned articles by leaders in the field.
Submissions are welcome across all ‘omics fields, including but not limited to the following areas:
- Epigenomic alterations in cancer, including DNA methylation, histone modifications or noncoding RNAs
- Epigenomic biomarkers for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic response
- Epigenetic therapies for cancer
If you would like to submit a manuscript for consideration please use the following link to our online submission system, and indicate in your covering letter that you would like it to be considered for the Cancer Epigenomics special issue.
