Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Highlighting Breast Cancer Research in Cell Biology and Genetics
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Editors of our open access journals in cell biology and genetics have curated a compilation of recent articles highlighting research in breast cancer.
Cell Biology and Genetics Research in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States. In recognition of this, we are proud to highlight some of the amazing research published on both the basic and clinical research fronts in our cell biology and genetics journals. The field of oncology is greatly informed by advances in bioscience, cell death, genomics, and epigenetics. From DNA methylation to programming cell death, researchers are finding new and promising tools to employ in the battle against breast cancer.
Below is a collection of recent articles from our open access journals, organized by primary theme and curated by our journal Editors, encompassing the fields of cell biology and genetics including:
BioData Mining, Cell and Bioscience, Cell Communication and Signaling, Cell Death and Disease, Cell Death Discovery, Cellular and Molecular Biology Letters, Clinical Epigenetics, Clinical Proteomics, Hereditas, Human Genomics, Lipids in Health and Disease, and Molecular Medicine.
We look forward to continuing to publish research that will continue to inform diagnostics and treatments in breast cancer, and indeed, all cancers in the years to come.
