Special Issue "Advances in Genetics of Colorectal Cancer (CRC)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 February 2022.
As the Guest Editor of the Special Issue “Advances in the Genetics of Colorectal Cancer (CRC)” by the journal Genes, I am delighted to invite you to contribute an original research or review article that addresses this evolving topic.
Colorectal cancer genetics research has taken a sharp turn since the era of next-generation sequencing (NGS), with an incredible volume of information and the discovery of new genetic alterations related to colorectal neoplasia, risk prediction algorithms, interaction of genetics with lifestyle, and more. However, clinical practice is trying to catch up with the vast information in order to give sound screening and surveillance recommendations, predict risks, and personalize treatment.
Due to your professional interest in this topic, we would be privileged to receive a manuscript from your group related to the above topic. Papers submitted will be subjected to peer review.
I anticipate your positive response.
Prof. Revital Kariv
