Special Issue "Integrative Genomics and Systems Medicine in Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2017).
Interests: bioinformatics; genomics; cancer; biological chemistry
Cancer is one of the most complex diseases and the second deadliest disease in humans. The prevention, diagnosis and treatment of various types of cancers are the most important task and a priority in biomedical research communities. Integrative genomics and systems medicine are two interdisciplinary approaches that are synergistically merged as an emerging field. Integrative genomics conducts integrative analyses on high-throughput genomic data with novel computational algorithms and further correlates with clinical outcomes for the identification of biological pathways and molecular targets for better therapies for cancer patients, while systems medicine dissects the systems of the human body as a whole with incorporating biochemical, physiological, and environment interactions and builds predictive and actionable models that understand cancer heterogeneity and complexity.
During the past decade, we have witnessed genomics and systems medicine exponentially increased in terms of technologies, data volumes as well as publications. This Special Issue is designed to present the latest findings about regulatory genomics and systems biology in cancer. We welcome the genomics, bioinformatics, and statistical work in broad areas such as various–omics technologies, multi-dimensional data integration, systems biology approaches, precision medicine studies, single cell research, pharmacogenomics, machine learning, high performance computing, and visualization.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Genes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
