Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue on Genomic Instability and Cancer is dedicated to our understanding of the processes of genomic instability in cancer, to the initiation of genomic instability and the dynamics of its propagation. Focus will be mechanisms of genomic instability in cancer taking into account diverse approaches and models in the field.
