Cancer progression Genome Biology special issue: call for papers


Genome Biology would like to announce that we are now inviting Research, Method or Software manuscript submissions for publication in a special issue on cancer progression and heterogeneity, which is planned for late summer 2014.

Recent advances, such as single-cell sequencing technologies, are allowing us to study cancer genomics at a depth that was not previously possible. Now, Genome Biology wants to highlight the importance of this field by publishing a special issue with an emphasis on cancer progression and heterogeneity. We will consider Research, Method and Software manuscripts describing insights into, or developing methods for studying, all aspects of the genomics of cancer progression, including the clonal evolution of cancer, cancer heterogeneity, metastasis, single-cell sequencing applications, therapy response and resistance, and cancer monitoring. The special issue will also include commissioned, topical Reviews and Opinions, written by leaders in the field.

The deadline for submissions is 30th April 2014. To submit your manuscript, please use our online submission system and indicate in your covering letter that you would like the article to be considered for the cancer progression special issue. If you would like to enquire about the suitability of a study for consideration, please email a presubmission enquiry to

Update: We are excited to announce that Professor Elaine R. Mardis from the Washington University in St. Louis and Professor Samuel Aparicio from the BC Cancer Research Centre will be the special issue Guest Editors.
