A section of Genes (ISSN 2073-4425).

Section Information

The section “Clinical Genomics in Genetic Disease and Cancer” covers the translational and clinical application of genomics to diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention of hereditary disorders and cancer. In particular, this section aims to facilitate the rapid publication of innovative research encompassing different aspects of medical genomics, from preclinical animal models to translational and clinical studies, and addresses legal and ethical issues. We also welcome submissions that apply new and emerging technologies in the fields of genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics and bioinformatic tools to advance knowledge in the clinical management of human genetic diseases, and heritable or acquired cancers. Some of the section specialty areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Precision medicine
  • Targeted genome editing
  • Gene therapy and delivery systems
  • Genetically-engineered cell therapy
  • RNA and small nucleic acid based therapeutics
  • Pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics
  • Biomarker development and application
  • Epigenetic therapy
  • Cancer immunotherapy
  • Genetic testing and molecular diagnostics
  • Genome-wide association studies
